Hunting is Not a Sport

A few of my thoughts on “sport hunting and trapping”:

Hunting of any kind is not a sport. Sport implies a competition between equally matched parties that are both aware of and agree to “the contest”. In sport, clear rules are established and known to all participants, and an impartial judge or referee is present to enforce the rules on both sides. In true sport any significant disadvantage by one side is generally offset by an equally significant handicap applied to the other side in order to maintain a fair level of competition. By no stretch of the imagination does hunting fall under this definition.

In fact, hunting is either an essential act required for survival (subsistence hunting), or it is a sadistic pass time practiced by serial killers of non-human species.
