There are some who hunt to feed their families or themselves. Perhaps they
more than others realize that those who buy meat in a grocery store are delegating the slaughter to someone else, often the noncitizens who are forced to take the very worst most dangerous jobs.The USDA, the biggest promoter of animal slaughter in the US, reported that in 2018 9.59 billion land mammals, 9.16 billion chickens and 236,860,000 turkeys were murdered for food.Around the world trillions of mammals, birds, and fishes are annually slain,

in the process causing myriad kinds of human diseases, climate change through deforestation, methane emissions, energy waste. 7.2 billion people are currently bulldozing more acreage every year for monoculture agriculture.

Millennials have caused the percentage of hunters in population to drop below 5%. The cult of masculinity, that one must kill animals in order to prove manliness, has fewer adherents every year.

Where I live now, much of the population hunts for food. Where I used to live, more than a few homeless people hunted for food. I appreciate the love for animals that you have. Though, for many, meat is survival. Like most issues, it's complicated, isn't it?
