Stupidity in Spain
This kind of stuff really pisses me off for several reasons. First off, is simply the fact that it is simply idiotic, gratuitous cruelty that seems to serve no real legitimate purpose. Secondly, is the effect that this kind of idiocy has on legitimate hunting. ARAs would be quick to try to attempt to link this type of activity with traditional hunting in their propaganda. It is not hunting, however. There is nothing about catapulting baby quail into the air and shooting them that is in the spirit of conservation, sportsmanship, or fair chase. Nothing at all. This is the kind of thing that all sportsmen should be quick to condemn. Our future depends upon making sure the public clearly understands the difference between sportsmanship and gratuitous cruelty and stupidity.
