California to ban internet hunting.

SACRAMENTO, California (AP) -- Wildlife regulators took the first step Tuesday to bar hunters from using the Internet to shoot animals, responding to a Texas Web site that planned to let users fire at real game with the click of a mouse.

Good for them. This is seriously the stupidest thing I've ever heard of, it's just wrong in so many ways.

I never heard of that before

I'm opposed to hunting anyway, how many people are really hunting for food to keep themselves alive? One of the most traumatic experiences I've ever had was seeing a dead deer on top of a truck in a parking lot of all places, there was blood all over the place. I've never forgotten that image.

Agree fully with you both. My other (tentative) exception is hunting to cull. I still dont like this, but it is necessary at times. I know farmers here have big problems with kangaroos and rabbits. The rabbit sespecially, as they're an introduced species.
Anyway, I'm sidetracking. Shooting is not a sport. It's bloodlust.

how the hell do you shoot animals over the internet? how is that possible? and why not just buy a computer game instead, which allows you to shoot all kinds of things?

i agree with you all, this must be single-handedly is the stupidest business idea ever conceived.

It's not just a stupid business idea, it's immoral and irresponsible.

There's a gun mounted on a webcam that can be aimed and fired over the internet. But what happens if the animal is wounded? You can't track in down. What happens when someone is taking a shortcut through the woods and gets shot...interesting trial don't you think.

Absolutely irresponsible.

Let's see. We can use the internet to objectify and make a woman do just about any sexual acts we can imagine, but if it affects an animal, we better pass a law........

My views are not based on any animal rights issues. I honestly do believe that RESPONSIBLE hunting does have to take place with certain animals.

My views are the dangers of having a weapon just a mouse click away.

This is retarded.

Strange how people care about this when most of the world's population consumes animals for food.

"We don't think Californians should be able to hunt sitting at their computers at home," said Steve Martarano, a spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Game.
Why's that, because we should be more like India? I care so much about animals that I eat them every day.

This isn't about animal rights. It's about the responsibility of it.

I've seen the word "responsibility" on most every post on this thread, but nobody has stated a thorough case.

I guess you're advocating killing people over the internet then?

If you want to hunt animals, get your legal hunting rifle, wait until hunting season, and shoot away. You'll have plenty of meat to shove in your deep freezer then.

As it stands, this internet ploy is just an excuse to kill animals out-of-season and I doubt the meat is even eaten. There's responsible hunting, which I support, and then there's irresponsible hunting like this thing over the internet.
