What did you do to arrive at THAT comparison?

There's poaching (illegal) and deer hunting (legal).

Think it out.

If true, great. But I'm going to need some more trustworthy sources before believing!

What does God's word say about natural brute beasts?
I think He was talking about gangs.......pretty sure!

I could not have said it better! Strange for anyone to compare hunting for food, to poaching!

Agreed -- completely! But you will have to work very hard to explain that point to an audience raised with the comforts of a mature fully-industrialized society, and spoon-fed a "Disney Mentality" by the lowest-common-denominator media.

The fictional poachers in this story do have real-life parallels (and they are, sadly, only a generation or two removed from a primitive hunter/gatherer existence). And when a society at the low end of the socio-economic scale emerges and develops, as is currently going on in the Third World, it begins by taking on the simplest, lowest-paying, and most-regimented tasks.

That is precisely why the clothing industry is "farmed out" to places like Central America, Indonesia, and the Asian sub-continent (and the same product is then sent back to the first world -- covered with a "trendy" label and sold at an inflated price to the impressionable; often the same people who throw a pittance or two to social causes of which they approve.
