I was not yelling at anyone, Invictus..
Like I said, I don't preach to people. Everyone has their own lifestyle, and I accept that. But also accept that I have my own lifestyle and belief system.

I am against trophy hunting for the sake of putting an animal's body or head in your livingroom as an ornament.
However if an animal's life is taken to provide nourishment-- or as is neccessary in some cultures-- for their skins,then I have no problem with that.

Brian Griffin: Yeah, about your pamphlet... uh, I'm not seeing anything about German history between 1939 and 1945. There's just a big gap.

I never implied that you were yelling at anyone, Kristina. I'm saying that I also don't yell at people whose opinions differ from mine.

We don't need higher/larger creatures doing something we already do. It is a proven fact that there are people out there that have killed humans just to make ornaments out of the skin. Ed Gein for example was a person who killed two woemn for the skin and he also grave robbed to make things such as lamp shades, bowls and belts out of human parts.

Only reptile skin I have, and ever will, is one I skinned myself with my father when I was around 6 or 7. We were biking and found garter snake roadkill. We used to go biking out in the country whenever he wasn't away and I would always bring a bag and take home all the dead animals and give them "proper burials" in my mom's gardens. This one didn't make it to the garden

i dont support the trade (reptile skin), but i do however hunt, fish, and buy leather, AND criticize those ignorant to kill herps on their land because they are snake or what not.
I got a bunch of snakes and a bunch of guns

Many people kill snakes on there land because they have children one bite and your child has very little of a chance of survival

Now whats more important to you a family members life or a few snakes? I dont Support people killing ven's on their property 100% but i can see why its done
"Far more crime and child abuse has been committed by zealots in the name of God, Jesus and Mohammed than has ever been committed in the name of Satan. Many people don't like that statement, but few can argue with it."
