RE: turtle soup
Actually, I love animals to the point of wanting to help them as a career. That's really where I am at right now. But coming from West Virginia, where kids get the first days of hunting season off, I can tell you that there are definitely legit reasons to hunt deer. If the deer population isn't kept down, disease spreads like wildfire, food for the deer becomes scarce, and deer carcasses litter the road. As it IS, there are problems with deer overpopulation around here. While I wouldn't ever hunt, I really can't disagree with those who DO hunt. It's a LOT more humane than the livestock industry, trust me. Do a little research and your feelings might change.
