Oregon-based CFZ rep Regan Lee has an interesting new post over at Binnall of America on the "kill or no-kill" policy when it comes to Bigfoot.
As someone who believes Bigfoot to be a wholly paranormal beast, I'm not sure that trying to kill it in a conventional manner is the easiest thing in the world to do. But, that's just my own personal opinion.
As Regan says:
"Within the Bigfoot phenomena, there are several controversial topics. I'd say the three most controversial include the debates over 'giant ape' vs. something else, paranormal/inter-dimensional vs. strictly flesh and blood, and the kill/no kill view. I'm not that interested in the first of the three; it is what it is in that regard. And if Sasquatch is a paranormal/inter-dimensional entity, (which I believe it is) the other stuff is moot. But one thing I'm absolutely positive about is the kill/no kill debate. Regardless of what Bigfoot is, I support, without hesitation, a 'no kill' stance."
And here's the rest of Regan's post.
Check it out, as it contains some thought-provoking commentary.
And, of course, hunting (whether Bigfoot or, indeed, any animal) is a topic that always sharply divides people.
As for me, I have no problem with people hunting for food. After all, it's really not that different to going to a shop and buying a frozen chicken or a piece of beef. In the latter scenario, you buy it already killed; and that's the only difference.
As for hunting and killing animals for pleasure, well, I don't get it.
Of course, it's not my place to impose my beliefs and ideas on other people (I leave that dubious honor to our elected leaders); but I just don't understand why someone might take pleasure in - and get a rush from - slaughtering an animal just to stick its head on a wall.
