It occured to me today that some of the recent debate on this forum boils down to one question: Do wild animals deserve a sense of respect that we (generaly) don't afford the average cow/pig/chicken?
The canned hunt debate tends to take on so many meanings to so many different people... meat vs trophy, fair chase vs guarantee's, personal property rights vs public lands, lazy hunts vs real world, etc. the list could continue. But the one question that remains to be asked is should traditionaly wild species be raised for profit? Or is the raising of wildlife, or habitat creation on private land for the sole purpose of atracting wildlife for profit wrong or right? And please spare us all the lectures about how all amimals were once domesticated... I'm curious as to what you all have to say.
