Trophy hunting is not hunting and needs to end

It is with sadness that I must cancel my membership in the BC Liberal Party.

 

I have supported the party since its inception, many times with difficulty, but I believed our focus on a strong healthy economy that benefited all British Columbians would ultimately lead to a better place to live for all.

 

The recent decision by our government to consider expanding the grizzly bear hunt speaks to a problematic and arrogant attitude toward wildlife within the Liberal Party. Most British Columbians seem to understand that hunting per se it not a bad thing, as long as the meat and hide is used in a beneficial way.

 

Trophy hunting presents a much different problem, a hunter is killing an animal solely because he/she can...

Micaela Powell's insight:

Micaela Powell's insight:

it is really inspiring to know there are people out there in the world that will do stuff like this. animals don't have a voice, they can't speak up for themselves, so when there are people that do speak up for animals, i really look up to them.

7 Dog Breeds that Don't Deserve Their Stereotypes

7 Dog Breeds that Don't Deserve Their Stereotypes | Micaela's CE project for scholarships, and applying to colleges for veterinary and animal care | Scoop.it
There are many dog breeds that don’t deserve the bad rap society places upon them. Perhaps your dog is one of the breeds or mixed mutts that get a bad rap. Here are the top 10 dog breeds who get an undeserving reputation.
