    Apparently Gamebird shooting is cruel? Raving Vegan??????

    This is just a snippet of the drivel being spewed by another of NZME antis. Funnily enough a Waikato Uni Teacher just like NZME Waikato Uni lecturer, sorry firearms expert

    The shooters get up before dawn, don camouflage suits and war paint, trek down to lakes, ponds and rivers, and install themselves in hidden huts called maimai to wait for daylight. When they spot their targets they train powerful firearms on them and blast them out of the sky.

    Just moments before the birds were sleeping peacefully, heads resting gently on their backs. Next to them their lifelong partners, also sleeping peacefully.
    Suddenly their watery refuge is turbulent with panicking family and friends, the air filled with their cries.

    Terrified, they take to the sky in an effort to escape, only to be picked off by shooters who fist pump and whoop in delight when they make a kill.

    There is so much wrong with duck shooting that it is hard to know where to begin, but we could start with sentience.

    By the way you big bag nasty duck shooters, shes a member of safe and they want us banned

    She's probably right. But we have a sh*t load of fun doing it, spend time in awesome places with our best friends and family, take organic sustainable harvested meat home, and it's legal - so she can suck eggs.

    The way that animals and birds are treated at the meat works, I would much rather do my own killing.

    Why do people that can't take advice, insist on giving it?

    Vegan/Animals rights activists always try and bestow human emotions on animals to try and create a parallel in order to garner support from people that are easily led.

    I tell you what though. I cannot stand the wanton slaughter of bean,carrots,spinach and so forth that is going on.
    These plants are going about thier own buisiness to wake up early morning and some grubby market gardener cutting down entire family groups some arent event kept just slashed and left to rot!!! This has to stop!!! Vege's have rights too and this practice needs to be banned,OUTRIGHT

    Veganism is a disease of the times, and a symptom of affluence. There are millions of starving people in this world who would kill for a feed of duck (or anything) right now.

    I wonder how many vegans would stick to their beliefs in times of hardship? Morals and ethics go out the window when it comes down to survival.

    My mate has a dozen or so ducks that live on his back paddock. One of them is missing a leg and gets gang raped by the rest! Is it OK to just shoot the rapey ones perhaps?

    @Tommy

    How do you know this is rape?

    Maybe the one legged Duck is a total slut who is totally into this and has given consent, quack quack!

    Can an animal even understand the concept of Rape?

    Correct and everything she stands for. I'm sure the sentiment would be mutual
