I'm very much anti-hunting. I fail to see how sitting hidden in a tree and using a gun to shoot innocent animals can be considered a sport. And I knew it was going to be a challenge but...
There are dead things in every booth! And my booth is kitty corner to the judging tables, so all these proud
More disturbing than the glass eyes of dead deer looking at me all day is the violent culture being taught to innocent children. I hear parents asking their kids if they'll be able to kill that big a deer when they grow up. Kids are walking around with shirts that say lovely things like "If it flies, it dies" and "If it's brown, it's down."
There's a fishing pond set up, filled with fish. Kids buy 5 minutes with a fishing rod to try and catch a fish. And if they do they get to keep the fish. So the good, kindly people throw the suffocating fish into a ziploc bag, without water in it, and hand it to the kid, who laughs as they watch the poor creature struggling to breathe. I've seen several bags where the poor thing has dropped eggs in their terror.
Walking to the bathroom is torture because I have to pass by 2 booths for taxidermists, booths full of stuffed animals and I'm not talking cute, fluffy toys. It's horrible. Today is my last day at this show and I will NEVER work another hunting show again. I can't take it.
