“Many people believe that hunting damages populations of wild animals. In reality, hunting harvest models are founded on the principle that we will impact populations minimally.”
In this short film, the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation presents a compelling argument to those who oppose hunting, yet rely on agricultural processes.
As the video outlines, while there have always been those who do not believe that humans should pursue and consume wildlife, the meat harvested from hunting is not only chemical and hormone free, but has lived entirely in nature until its death.
On top of that, regulated harvests can actually add stability to populations that otherwise fluctuate dangerously.
