killing wildlife dead wolves psychopaths

In response to this horrible crime scene photo, a Facebook friend innocently asked me, “What is the reason they do this?”

As I’ve said before, forget hunters’ feeble rationalizations. All I could tell her was: For fun? Sport? Hate? Intolerance? An overinflated sense of entitlement? Because they’re psychopaths?

Take your pick.

It seems there are a lot of reasons people can dream up to want to kill the wildlife their area is blessed with—especially if they already have their minds made up to be intolerant.

Folks need to decide to accept their animal neighbors and adopt the old adage, “live and let live.”

While speculating on a murderer’s motive might make interesting tea time conversation, when it comes down to it, I don’t want to hear their justifications, their misguided notions, how they compartmentalize their killings or objectify their victims, I just want the behavior to end—one way or another.
