Why Hunting Is Wrong: The Simple Truth

Why Hunting Is Wrong: The Simple Truth

There’s only one question you need to ask yourself. Maybe you aren’t ready to answer. Until then, don’t bother debating. If you aren’t willing to be honest with yourself about the reality of the situation, then you have nothing of value to bring to the discussion. That may seem harsh, but it’s true. Answer this question first. Then let the conversation begin.

    Fun fact, humans are animals and a major predator in the food chain. If humans stopped hunting or eating meat, it would go agains MILLIONS of years of evolution. You dont get angry as a polar bear eating a seal alive and it not dying for upwards of 3 hours, yet you piss your little pants when someone fills their freezer with a bear. You dont blame the lion for hunting a gazelle and eating it alive. Its NATURE, life isnt nearly as magical as you seem to think it is. This is reality, its harsh, and brutal, and people like you werent meant to survive. You’re vegan because our modern fucked up society allows you to be vegan, nothing more.

    we hunt possums, stags and pigs over here in nz. all of which are invasive and they destroy bush that kiwi and other native birds feed on, they spread kauri dieback that kills our kauri trees that have lived for thousands of years, they harass farmers livestock and kill or seriously harm their dogs. if me and my family stopped hunting them there would be some big problems around the farm and bush.

    they also breed real fast(mainly possums). we also get benefits as well, free food,a good sport,helping the environment,horns and a little hides. all 100% worth it.

    just try go off hunting or hiking. its real fun and adventurous.

    Hunting is so fun and amazing.

  7. S.S RADON on July 22, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    i think you’re biased, dunno why.
    hunting is more ethical than farming & while we can survive without killing animals we can survive without computers, but we would’nt really thrive as meat is calorie dense and nutritious and it is more sustainable than the popular truth leads on.
    do whatever you want with your life and so long as it doesn’t affect me I don’t care but your video and points are poorly made and researched & very biased & one sided IMO

  8. YOUTH & WHITETAIL on July 22, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Me: shot first deer when I was 5 and 2 every year since and I’m 14 and love hunting I now want to stop 😂

    “We’ve all had contact with pets or other animals in our lives.We can’t deny our understanding of the feelings that each animal has.The ability to suffer pain or loneliness.And to fear.Like us also,each animal has the ability to express contentment,to build family structures,and want of satisfying basic instincts and desires.For many of us though,that’s as far as we allow our imagination to explore before the truth inconveniences our habits.The disconnect that exists between consuming a product and the reality it takes to bring that product to market is a phenomenon to itself.Animals are treated like commodities and referred to as property.We call it ‘murder’ to kill a human being yet create legal and illegal industries out of what would be regarded as torture if humans were involved.And we pay people to do things to animals that none of us would engage in personally.Just because we don’t see it up close does not mean we’re not responsible.Peter Singer,the man who popularized the term speciesism wrote,Although there may be differences between animals and humans they each share the ability to suffer.And we must give equal consideration to that suffering.Any position that allows similar cases to be treated in a dissimilar fashion fails to qualify as an acceptable moral theory.Around the world this year 65 billion animals will be killed in factory farms.How many animals lives is one humans life worth ?A meat-eater will consume,on average 8,000 animals in their lifetime.Ocean pollution,global warming and deforestation are driving us towards the next great mass extinction and the meat industry is the greatest negative factor in all of these phenomena.The illegal traffic &wildlife trade now ranks as one of the largest criminal industries in the world-it’s up there with drugs,guns and human trafficking.The ability to stop this devastation lies in the willingness of a international community to step in and preserve a dying global treasure.Experimentation on animals-If animals are so like us that we can substitute using them instead of humans then surely they have the very same attributes that mean they deserve to be protected from harm?”Damien Mander #vegan #speciesism#akashinga #poaching #furtrade #leather #trapping #zoonoticdiseases#wildlifetrafficking

    Hunting is murder

  11. MC Tours on July 22, 2021 at 8:58 pm

    Sometimes I wish we could leave this planet for the animals and populate Mars.

  12. Joshua Carson on July 22, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    What about the overpopulation of coyotes yeah I know they tend to attack your animals and people. We’re nuisance animals like boars who tear up entire crop fields. Or another nuisance animal like Nutri down in Louisiana that tear up dams. There will always be a need to hunt

  13. Rylan Cowgill on July 22, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    you have ate meet before i bet

  14. Based Bread 69 on July 22, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Im still gonna hunt. Cope.

  15. Kayla on July 22, 2021 at 9:02 pm

    Let’s talk about “local and grass fed.”Have you ever heard this sentence? I often wonder how people are able to change the subject and bring the attention on how “good” they are for eating “local” and “grass fed “ cows, when we’re talking about the unnecessary killing of other sentient beings. local cows, chickens and other animals have lives that matter to them. They are not grateful for their “grass fed” diet when they’re hanging upside down in a slaughter house having their throats slit against their will. No amount of welfare justifies the unnecessary slaughter of other animals. If you respect other animals and want them to have a good life, then give them a good life without expecting anything in return. Give it because they deserve it , not because you’ll feel more comfortable with your immoral decision to slaughter them. -Seb Alex #grassfed #local#dairy#beef #vegan #pastureraised#eggs #dairyisscary#steak#freerange#animalrights

  16. Rylan Cowgill on July 22, 2021 at 9:04 pm

    you are rong it gives you food it is fun if you dont you dont know what you are mising

  17. A Up on July 22, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    If you ask me hunting is more ethical because I look at a animal and think I want that one and I don’t kill other animals on accident unlike other commercial places

  18. Death on July 22, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    When the video has 1k dislikes and around 500 likes you know its gonna be good

    Ps look in the comments when people try to talk to him about it he just says that there is no reason to do it eventhough some people do eat off of it and more commonly coyotes are killed because they will kill pets and farm animals. He also says humans are a plague to the world as his excuse for this. Take that as you will.

  19. King KTB333 on July 22, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    We have to keep the animal population under control.

    Many retarded hunters who dont get the point here

  24. devildogvet1775 on July 22, 2021 at 9:08 pm

    So ask yourself if we don’t need to do it for furs to keep warm or fill bellies if all the synthetic Pink Floyd clothes you wear are polluting the air in their production and it’s better to slaughter animals at market than hunting. Wtf bro. You are a tool and lost. Where do you live? Seriously reply. I want to get to know you. Ned in NY yup. Believe it or not

  25. JayceK on July 22, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    Get a life.

  26. Keenan Wilson on July 22, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    We’re drifting further and further away from who we are meant to be. We’re omnivorous apes meant to hunt and kill. That’s just how it is. One of the biggest problems we have is forgetting that we’re just animals like everything else out there. Being smarter doesnt make us enlightened gods that are above everything. Hunting and eating other animals is natural for humans. Grow some balls

  27. Liam Blundell on July 22, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    You’re looking at hunting in a narrow minded way. In some cases its necessary to manage populations to ensure equilibrium, meat is just a by product. I also feel that it gives a person a much greater understanding and respect for the animals they are choosing to kill, the meat they eat, and so on. I think if more people at least tried it, they would certainly be more inclined to promote higher standards of welfare and care for livestock and farmed meat. I for one, am a keen fisherman, but choose not to purchase seafood from supermarkets if I can help it, as I feel that it is not sourced in a responsible, sustainable way. If I want to eat fish, I would rather catch it myself. Peoples view on meat today is a deep societal problem that’s a result of removing something that was a normal way of life for thousands of years (hunting), and replacing it with packaged meat. Something that doesn’t invoke any sense of emotion or connection to the natural world. This sort of stuff needs to be taught in schools, to give people a grounding in to what life actually is and our impact on this planet.

  28. Tiago Fernandes on July 22, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    I also believe hunting isn’t a necessity for us to survive, however Jon you need to come up with better fucking arguments than just there is no need to kill animals in 2015.

  29. COMMIE CRUSHER on July 22, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    You’re like a religious convert who feels like it’s their duty to convert everybody. You’re not better than anybody else bud. I choose to eat meat and to hunt, just to piss you off.

  30. Moxthecaffineaddict on July 22, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    I’m a hog hunter. For those who don’t know that means I kill 100-150 on a good day and butcher 2-4 for food because hogs suck and kill people and destroy the eco system if you don’t like that your a idiot plain
    And simple. Fuck hogs you’ll hate me till your being ripped apart.

  31. Cadillac Kadafi on July 22, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    I see the light to dislike ratio on this video, and guess what? I’m in the minority! I’m one of the people who liked the video! History will prove you right brother! And one time slavery was viewed as popular, people who were opposed to slavery were in the minority!

    Long story short? When people view US hundreds of years from now back in this current time period we’re living in, people are going to actually be dumbfounded and say it’s actually people who live to once upon a Time that believed in slaughtering and killing animals?
    It’s disgusting! Animals are no different than humans, they’re living beings with feelings and emotions, I don’t know how people can justify killing living beings.

  32. Code on July 22, 2021 at 9:22 pm

    Animals literally hunt each other🤡🤡🤡🤡

  33. Fraves 937 on July 22, 2021 at 9:23 pm

    Sometimes some animals are simply just killed for reasons outside of food and fur.

    Coyotes, Mountain lions, Bob cats, sometimes feral dogs even.. Nobody thinks its great but your holier then thou attitude makes you just as bad as those you condemn.

    Just an observation.

  34. Caiden Ocampo on July 22, 2021 at 9:25 pm

    I don’t just hunt to provide for my family but hunting helps save human lives because in the last decade their have been 19,000 deaths by deer hitting people

  35. Rylan Cowgill on July 22, 2021 at 9:26 pm

    that why they have babyies

  36. Malthe Hessel Kiel on July 22, 2021 at 9:28 pm

    Plants are also living things. We humans are a part of nature. Living organisms live by each other and of each other. I don’t think, that massive monocultures with crops and other plants should rule the world. In the act og trying to feed the people og the earth.

    We need to be more diverse than that. Hunters often have a lot of respect for the animals they are after. For many the feeling of freedom and richness from nature is enough. I am of the understanding that although humans are “smart” we are still animals. When hunters are wearing tools to take down certain animals they are having to cope with the quote: “With great power comes great responsibility”.

    Hunters and vegans should collaborate instead of fighting each other. I think that it is vert important to respect each other, and I think, that there are positive things with both ways of living.

    For me the most important things are to respect and enjoy the natural world as a community, and therefore respecting the living things around us the best way we know of. The thought is important.

  37. Matt on July 22, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    Fuckin tree hugger

  38. Wendy Manos on July 22, 2021 at 9:30 pm

    It’s about the memories made and the food, most hunters are great conservationists I’ve never seen a vegan cleaning garbage in the woods yet I’ve seen it done hunters many times

  39. harduckn on July 22, 2021 at 9:32 pm

    Hands down more conservation dollars come from hunters than any other group combined. Pony up your dollars and then we can talk ya.

  40. FarGo123 on July 22, 2021 at 9:33 pm

    I am not against hunting for food.
    But hunting for fun is simply wrong , and that of endangered species is very very wrong.

  41. JayceK on July 22, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Ok, you’re not stopping me from hunting. If you even are trying to stop hunting, then go away. You will lose this argument. When you grow up broke and living in the middle of the woods, you have to hunt to survive. I love deer backstraps. They are so delicious. God made animals for human benefit.

  42. rosexxi on July 22, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    I just hate when people do it for fun and dont at least utilize the animal after and just leave it or use it as a "trophy".

  43. Gaming time on July 22, 2021 at 9:34 pm

    Hunters kill them fast enough they only feel pain for about 2 seconds

  44. gravitomagneticpower on July 22, 2021 at 9:35 pm

    People who condemn hunting are usually wrongly informed, emotionaly blinded or hypocrites… Meat does not come from supermarkets. Even eggs in pasta for vegetarians often come fom cage chicken farms. Google these farms and then think about what is more ethical. Many hunters care for nature much more than enviromental activists. An ethical hunter feels respect when killing an animal. In my country hunters have even obligations and responsibilities. They are responsible for crop damage, they are obliged to feed animals in winter etc… Of course they regulate pest, overpopulated spieces, ailing animals, make biological studies and statistics, take care for invasive species, eliminate the spread of certain diseases and much more…

  45. thomas walsh on July 22, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    I’d hunt animals even if I didn’t eat meat. If it wants to live it’ll kill me first.

  46. Veritaphobic on July 22, 2021 at 9:40 pm


  47. Double 0 Gamer on July 22, 2021 at 9:40 pm

    Gather in the summer hunt in the winter.

  48. Dan Porter on July 22, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    If it wasn’t for hunting You wouldn’t exist, and if you eat meat, you kill by proxy. maybe you are a failure as a hunter and you just everyone should stop hunting. if you eat plants you are an intentional killing same with cattle, chickens etc. go and preach with Kentucky fried chicken and make some friends with the chickens.

  49. Kaeden Andre on July 22, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    I just got my first cross bow kill. Ya know I’ll come back later.

  50. Laikaツ on July 22, 2021 at 9:47 pm

    this makes me want to hunt more
