Hunting has caused huge decreases in the populations of so many different animals across the United States.
While some people argue that hunting is a form of population control and conservation control, that is usually untrue.
After saving wolves from the brink of extinction in Michigan through various conservation efforts, they were removed from the endangered species list.
Soon after, people began hunting them for trophies, and even spreading lies about how dangerous the wolves were to justify and promote hunting them. However, no scientific evidence supports the necessity of hunting wolves.
Even animals that are on the endangered species list are sometimes illegally hunted. Last year, a man in Oregon illegally shot a Bald Eagle, the national bird of the United States. It is unclear if the authorities caught the person who committed this crime.
Recently Kurt Johnston Duncan a 56-year-old man in Michigan illegally killed 125 animals, including Bald Eagles and wolves.
Some of the other animals include deer, turkey, bears, and bobcats. The Department of Natural Resources detectives said that Kurt Johnston Duncan hunted these animals simply because he“likes to do it.”
Let’s get Senator Sanders to draft legislation that would punish wildlife killers and make it illegal for them to hunt ever again!
