CULTURE-SHIFT ALERT: A pro-hunting editorial at The New York Times.

This news story is more ambivalent, carefully noting:

Whether hunting should survive — and whether an overlay of ethics and responsibility can overcome the objections that many people have to killing animals for recreation and food — is another question.

But it’s still reasonably fair, also noting that something has to keep the numbers of deer, etc., under control in the absence of predators, and not portraying hunters as drunken bums probably bent on rape or murder in addition to pathologically wanting to torture defenseless animals, the latter portrayals being more common in some politically correct circles.
