There is a 1994 movie entitled "Surviving The Game", where former rapper, turned actor "Ice T" plays a homeless man who is lured to a remote area and hunted as human prey. There are some who believe that instead of using the homeless, this would be a fitting end for the so-called "sportsmen" who pleasure themselves by killing defenseless animals; to be hunted as they have hunted.

I agree , people are omnivores. But men have always supported war. The only difference between War and the hunting of animals, is that in war the prey you are hunting is also hunting you. If we didn't accept it we would stop supporting it.
LOL ! I'm sure they would complain that such a thing would be cruel and inhuman. I would buy a front row ticket.
I agree. Better yet, they should be put right in front of the animals they never take on barehanded for sport to see if the animals are in a sporting mood :)
I agree, spending time and money simply for the "sport" of killing, and for a grotesque trophy to hang on your wall, is purely sadistic.
I agree. It was not uncommon in the Indigenous world to show respect to the slaughtered animal by asking forgiveness at the kill. Today, such civilized behavior is seen as foolishness, because man believes that he himself is God.
Apparently, these so-called sportsman can only be "thrilled" by watching the life blood flow out of an innocent animal. Once in a while, they will shoot each other by mistake. But It is hard to find sympathy for such a cold heart.
I can't even watch such cruelty even if it on movies. But we really don't know what motivates them to do such thing.
Interesting observation, but I do not have to be mindful of anything, since I have never taken the life of an animal for the "sport" of it. I don't drive a coal truck or run a powerplant. War is hunting human prey.Your tax dollars support it.
Everyone has to be mindful of everything. Your 'sport,' whatever it might be, kills life too, you just might choose not to see it.
Just because someone else killed an animal so you could eat it or have electricity doesn't mean that you had no part in it if you demanded the meat or electricity or whatever then it was done on your behalf.
BunblelyBee, LOL people who hunt for sport are not providing me with meat, and certainly not with electricity. How do you get "electricity" from sport hunting? It's not done on my behalf; it's done for the pleasure of killing.
You're missing the point. All actions are attached to a chain, at the end of which is the destruction of life. Some chains are short and easy to see the end. Some aren't. Your pleasure is chained as much as is sport hunting.
JS, I am well aware of the cycle of life. If my "chained pleasure" is no different than that of a sports hunter, then neither is that of a serial killer. It follows, according to your logic, that no one is accountable for murder.
No it doesn't. The accounting is important, but has to be true. ALL are accountable. There may be different degrees, we all have a sheet. You are trying to make a simple black/white accusation, but the world is mostly grey and requires deeper nuance.
JS, If I ever need a lawyer .... You can swing a jury but I'm not buying it. It is very black and white. People needlessly kill for sport. I have simplified nothing. Perhaps, I am more human than human. Perhaps, I should just fly away!
Well, you never said you were of the spirit world. That would make for a light footprint. And just for the record, I don't even squish bugs, so it isn't like I am pro-harming-the-world. It was just a be careful throwing stones argument.
