 Hunting is a barbarian tradition, a shame that should be banned worldwide. We left our caverns centuries ago, we don't need to kill anyone, especially for "fun"

Moreover, the dogs are subjected to deplorable sanitary conditions and starvation in order to have better hunting performance. When they get injured end up being left to die or are killed by their owners.

It's about time to STOP animal abuse, we can't tolerate it anymore!
