Adolescent Cruelty
YouTube ^ | 7/23/08 | Revski

Posted on 07/23/2008 8:55:14 AM PDT by Revski

This is an animated video of a dove that we see in most back yards. As a child, I with a slingshot, 22 rifle and 12 gage shot gun, killed many kinds of birds just for sport, to see if I could aim good and bring the little creature to the ground. I didn’t kill for food but in adolescent behavior. It is so cruel and for this reason I created this video to show and teach the cruelty of this kind of behavior.

Tell that to the farmer where black birds eat up their crops. Or the Canadian Geese. Sorry.

They’re just birds, my cats kill ‘em all the time for nothing more than sport.

A man of kindness, to his beast is kind,
But brutal actions show a brutal mind:
Remember, He, who made thee, made the brute,
Who gave thee speech and reason, formed him mute;
He can't complain, but God's omniscient eye
Beholds thy cruelty - He hears his cry!
He was designed thy servant, not thy drudge,
But know - that his Creator is thy judge.

Animal cruelty doesn’t turn me on, so I won’t watch the video. But, for some here this is porn.

I understand the point, Revski. But I wouldn't go so far as to call it cruelty. It's just kids being kids. However, most of us grow up to learn that in many instances, needless killing is cruel. But there is such a thing as NEEDFUL killing too. And that's never cruel.

Beautiful dove, by the way.

The bird in his video is a mourning dove, they will sit at a feeder and gorge themselves until everything is gone. A Daisy Red Ryder BB gun has enough power to send them flying with a nice sting but not enough power to kill them.

All the video shows is a mourning dove sitting in a tree. It doesn't show one getting shot, chased or even fed. There may be some stupid commentary to go with it, I watched it with the sound off.

I’m not sure of the value of your video in it’s current state, but in general I think it’s impressive that you reformed your cruel attitude on your own.

Doves are best prepared stuffed with a jalapeno, wrapped in bacon and slow cooked on the pit.

It takes a bunch of the little fellas to make a meal.

During dove season in Texas the limit is 15 per day with special limits on White-Wing and Ring-necks.

The mourning dove, pictured in the video, is a game bird and is hunted in many states, particularly in the southern U.S. I’ve killed and eaten many of them, they provide good sport and are pretty tasty. If I remember correctly, their population numbers about 50,000,000 in the U.S. alone, so they’re not in any danger of extinction by any means.

I understand men or woman hunting because they have a taste for doves but many children and adults kill just to sport of killing and leave the bird laying there and I believe this is cruel. Thanks for commenting.

Cruel as a child but killing birds through ignorance. Not perfect but forgiven!

What do you think of ranchers who shoot coyotes to keep them off of their cattle? They don’t eat the coyotes (I certainly hope not...I can’t imagine a nastier meat!), but I don’t have trouble understanding the action.

My attitude was reformed because of the Love that Jesus showed all when he died for us. Thanks again for commenting.

I shoot rabbits in my condo subdivision but since it is illegal, I don't video the carnage.......I also trap squirrels who have caused me to spend over $200 the past two years on my 20' Arbovitae in order to save it from their relentless attempt to destroy it. I then drown them but don't video the carnage..........

As for the opossums that are overrunning my neck of the woods, well, lets just say that its illegal to trap them then release them to another geographic area...........You're obligated by law to kill them.

Wow, sorry to have gotten off track here. Give me an open dove hunting season here in Michigan!

I saw a coyote the other day crossing a busy suburban street with a cat dangling from its mouth. I had to laugh thinking of the great “mouser” (or birder) being caught at his own game.

Oh I like cats. I was just imagining the surprised and bewildered look on that cat’s face. (That WTF? image with the cat’s face all askew comes to mind.)
