Occupy Wildlife!

Occupy Wildlife! | real utopias | Scoop.it

A new USFWS survey suggests the popularity of hunting has risen from 4% in 2006 to 6% in 2011. Many are in doubt that a growth in hunting participation is actually going on, and suspect that those numbers have been skewed to give the illusion that it’s a growing, rather than a dying sport. Even if a few more people have fallen prey to the lure of the blood-sporting way, 6% of the population is not a very high percentage of the country considering that hunters and their ilk interject themselves into every issue that involves wildlife, while the rest of us who don’t approve of wildlife butchery are barely represented.
