    Again, here's the main sticking point clearly expressed: "These hunters will tell you it's to help conservation [...]. It is sickening that some people enjoy slaughtering animals just to show off the dead body on their wall at home."

    It is about conservation, and it is also about enjoyment and wouldn't happen if hunters didn't enjoy it. As we tend to shy away from the second part of that statement and entrench ourselves in an insufficient position that cannot win the argument alone, we're backed into a corner. You need to embrace the whole picture.

    Difficult, admittedly, but there you go.

    Fed up of these bias one sided attempts of journalism. Tried to make a complaint next to impossible just kept going in circles. But what did I expect, it's the bbc

    Purely coincidentally, I stumbled across this at lunchtime (it was linked into an article about evolution being shaped by man's activities, and the example was bighorn sheep); anyway here is an article that seems to recognise that hunting has a part to play within conservation, rather than being an out-and-out condemnation:

    Is "Pay to Slay" a slogan used by the SCI? if its one made up by the journalist or LACS, then that (along with there being no comments from SCI themselves, though they may have turned this down) obviously put's this report into the biased category. Other than that they are just reporting on a publicised event, its hardly news that the general public don't like trophy hunting, but they have to fill the online pages with something!

    Its worth voicing your concern though, have you tried this link?

    You don't "have" to pay - you choose to.

    I haven't had a TV for over 10 years and don't miss it at all. Even when travelling (which I do a lot) I don't find any need to turn on the TV.

    The only thing I miss watching is the rugby....

    I would seriously miss the documentaries. I don't travel, only ever been abroad once and wasn't impressed, I live in the most beautiful country in the world and am quite happy to stay here. I like to see life abroad, but don't necessarily want to be there
