I am in complete agreement with the writer of the letter about boltgun killing of deer  not being a kind death.

It is horribly cruel and barbaric to inflict such suffering upon an animal.

Furthermore, humans are encroaching on wildlife territory with all the developments and expansions of our cities.

What gives us the right to kill an innocent living creature for no apparent reason except for the fact that there are too many of them?

Should people also be shot and killed because there are too many of us?

Anyone who is of the opinion that killing an animal isn’t a big deal is a cruel, evil human being.
