Have an opinion?
It depends entirely on what they're hunting.I've got more sympathy for extreme measures when critically endangered animals are concerned, though. I don't think there are many Arctic seals in that category.
No. I don't think a person should be killed because they killed an animal. Almost all poaching is done in nations that are impoverished and those people are desperately trying to feed their families. You want to stop poaching then lift those countries up from poverty, fix the corruption in their government, make their economies free market and capitalistic and within a few generations poaching will stop because people will no longer have to choose between killing an animal illegally to get money vs. watching their children slowly starve to death.
Poaching is illegal. They are not hunting to sustain themselves. They kill animals who are on a protected list to sell off their parts for profit. They clearly don't care for life , which, to me, puts them outside the bounds of polite society. It's a vile and immoral practice. A simple fine and jail time isn't enough of a deterrent. They should be judged by the moral principles they believe in: that life can be reduced to parts of value. They should be killed and used to advance medical research. Their cruelty may lead to benefit in the world.
I think they should be tagged with a subdermal gps tracker, realeased into the the wild and hunted by professionals. With non lethal weaponry, but they don’t need to know that at first. Shoot them with a tranquilizer then toss me in jail for a few decades so they can reflect on how terrifying that felt.
1st offence should be slapped with a fine second offence fine and 1yr in jail third offence 100k fine and 5yrs in prison and fourth you should be treated like you treated the animals you poached, taken out back and bullet in your head bc u had 4 other chances and you didn't learn so evidently you have no respect of the law and why keep you around. i fully support animals and thinning out the herd but legally. if your poaching endangered animals no chance one and done you should be taken out.
No. I don't think anyone should be put to death for their crimes. I'm perfectly okay with solitary confinement for life for extreme crimes, though. And many people would consider that cruel and unusual punishment. I wouldn't consider illegal poaching to be serious enough to warrant that, however.
Lol what is wrong with humanity? Are their lives equal to humans? There was a question here about should women getting abortions be killed by law or not, and most of women said no. Wtf? There you are actually killing a life, a human and arguing to not give death sentence. Those were indeed just fucked face filthy disgusting whores.
Mmm I'd love me some hunting... Hunting poachers...
I agree with everything until the insult part 😂
@Sonorous that's truth too actually. They want to spread their legs but once they get pregnant, they just to runaway from a responsibility then.
Absolutely many of them are murderers look at the father and son who shot and killed the mother bear and her cubs and then laughed about it although I'm thankful they were caught and were imprisoned people like them do deserve the death penalty same as the guy who shot and killed Cecil the Lion
And the slut who aborted a human life?
I don’t think they should die, because that’s just cruel! But I think, seeing how killing animals is disgusting.. and what they are doing is illegal, definitely prison time!
Never. For certain rate animals there should be severe fines and/or jail time, but animal life is not more valuable than human life. And when it's people poaching for their own food? That shouldn't even be illegal.
Of course not! That's insane.I think poaching is highly immoral, and should be illegal (already usually is in most jurisdictions).But the death penalty? Seriously?
Uh, no, lol. I don't think people should receive the death penalty for anything because then you are giving the state the power to kill you.Only an absolute fool would trust a government with that kind of power.
All that humans are, are slightly smarter animals who tend to do a lot of stupid things. Poachers should not be given the death penalty, but definitely imprisoned for several years and stripped of any and all hunting licenses, gear, e. t. c.
no but if the animals are endangered they should get some prison time.
If I can take the law into my own hands, I'd personally shoot whoever kills or harms animals.
Trapping is ok as long as it's not a dead trap and your just moving the animal away from your home/property but poaching is very wrong and thay should get punished big time for it, maybe not that extreme as death penalty
I'm not familiar with the word, so I agree that the illegal ones should be executed.
why not?the double standard that a human life is worth more than another mammals... were mamamals too by the way irratates meI garuntee tht most people would be singing a different time if animals had the ability to talk
I generally oppose the death penalty, so no. But they should go to prison.
Much though I would say to shoot them in the head with a captive bolt, we should worry about 600,000+ people murdered via abortions since RvW, first.
They should die in the same way that they killed the animals, then their bodies displayed as an example to others.
Then all people in the first world should get death penalty. Most of them are indirect murder. People from 3rd world are dying for your high life standards.
I don't believe government should have the power to kill it's citizens.
Heavy fines, is sufficient and the confiscation of hunting materials.
No not the death penalty. What would hurt them more is losing everything they have.
Bumpity bump bump bump
Yes. They should be killed the same way they killed the animal.
There are places in Africa if they spot a poacher they just flat out shot him, they don't always die though
No there not doing something that bad the death penalty should be used for crimes like being religious in anyway
Should girls who rape also get charged? Yes they should. Women are the ones who buy fancy clothes that animals were killed for...
Right, only girls wear animal products?
@fishfish126 for the most part, yes.
Leather? Plus a lot of guys in fashion shows wear like crocodile skin and like lion pelts so...
@fishfish126 girls are self centered.
no; we don't even have death penalty for murder. They are just animal in most of people eyes, most people won't even care.
I'd support execution for people who perform abortions before saying a poacher deserves the death penalty. That's just dumb. Hefty fines and maybe incarceration, sure.
Nobody was talking about abortion
@Solomoncumquats Correct. My point is that I would sooner support harsher punishments for murdering a human fetus than wild animals.
I don't believe in the death penalty for anyone, animals or people. I do think they should see some kind of therapist who could figure out why they are doing what they are doing.
They do what they do because they want money and they don’t care about animals. Simple as that. Most people when pushed into a corner would make the exact same decision. It’s not something a therapist can fix.
@Wharvey98 Therapists aren't there to fix people, they're there to listen and try to understand people. Ideally, they could just talk to a friend, but when you have no one...And I don't feel like a human could really kill anything for money. There's some stronger underlying motivation they feel they could achieve through money, but it's not just for the sake of having it. You would have to have something wrong with you if you're willing to kill anyway, so they still need someone to talk to and connect with.
The thing is basically everyone is willing to kill when push comes to shove. Think about Nazi germany in ww2, are you trying to tell me there was something wrong with 99 percent of the population of Germany?
As for not killing for money, there’s literally entire professions built around it. Soldiers of fortune, hit men, poachers etc.
I don't think they should be killed but they definitely should be locked up.
I'd say 10-15 years in prison and fined heavily but not killed.
No, I would make them scrap the shit off zoos with toothbrushes and other animal related stuff, make them feel inferior to animals.
Only if users that update with Bump and holy fuck, Boop are included.
This needs to be a poll. I feel poachers should be hunted themselves...
No, but warn them and if they get caught a 2nd time then poach them in their ass.
Undecided. I think we will need a public vote on this.
I think they should be jailed. And heavily fined. But no, not jailed.
I mean capitally punished
Death penalty seems worthless.Let them work or serve for rest of life.
Not the death penalty, but maybe if their hands were severed so they wouldn't do anymore poaching, and 'poacher' branded on their cheek, so everyone knows who they are.
Considering humans are killing off the planet I’m certainly here for extreme consequences for people who don’t value life of animals.Killing them is too extreme. Prison time & community service however would be the method I would go with.
No. what if a family needs food and they kill an animal illegally because it's not hunting season should they be executed? A fine yes, not death
Go to YouTube and copy and paste:Ernie Tertelgte Is The Natural Living ManInto the search box. A Montana mountain man had to appear in court because he got caught fishing without a license. He won! lol
No, a human life is worth far more than an animals.
@mattdzzHumans are a type of mammal. Technically one could say we are a type of animal. Hypothetical which do you think is worth more a human that abused and or raped, and or tortured 20 people or an animals that harmed 1 person.
No. Death penalty should be reserved for people who kill humans only when it isn‘t for self defense.
I do think you should recieve the same punishment you wish on others
Defenatley not, a paid fine would be enough. Hunting isn't animal abuse
I don't know I don't really give a fuck about the animals tbh.
We don't even have the death penalty for killing people, so i guess not.
No only jail time if the animals are under protection of extinction
Hunting is the only sport in the world where the other team doesn't know they're playing.
Give them the electric chair or gas chamber or both
If it is illegal, it should be on the table as a potential consequence.
Seals eat other animals and that's a part of the evolutionary process, as is poacher hunting.
Do you suppose that hunter was going to eat the seal?
Life sentence would be better, as the death penalty provides an easy way out
Yes, should receive the death penalty but it’s about survival mode? 🤷🏻♀️💔😢😭😣
Not in general, but if someone trespasses on your land and is shooting a gun might as well shoot back and utilize castle doctrine.
Yes.And then take their carcasses to feed animals.
if they are breaking the law then yes
