Moo-ving people toward compassionate living

Elk

Wishful Thinking


We like to envision elk living free in the wild, as this bugling bull elk is doing.


We like to think of the great outdoors, and the wild animals that God has given us, such as this bull elk in Jasper National Park.


There is something so endearing about baby animals, that most people want to cuddle them, such as this baby elk living free with his family in the wild.


What can I do?

Please Help Our Efforts

How can I help stop the pain and suffering?

Go Vegan!

  • Don't eat animals or their by-products (meat, fish, poultry, eggs, dairy, cheese, milk).

  • Don't wear or use animal products (fur, fur trim, leather, skins, wool, silk).

  • Tell others why you have made this compassionate choice. 

Always be peaceful and polite when expressing your feelings.

Speak out against all forms of animal exploitation and cruelty.

Refer others to our website so they can see for themselves. 

Write letters to editors of newspapers, to broadcasters, and to elected officials.  - Animals deserve the legal rights not to be used, exploited, and destroyed by humans.

Be a believable witness!

Give only to compassionate and cruelty-free organizations.

  • Charities that do not test on animals or use animals for research.

  • Environmental organizations that don't believe in hunting. 

  • Before you give, check carefully to see where their money goes.

  • Don't be a "meanie greenie."

Buy only cruelty-free makeup, toiletries, and household products.

  • Products that contain no animal by-products or ingredients.

  • Products that are not tested on animals.

  • Educate yourself.

Always adopt companion animals.  Do not buy them from pet shops or breeders. 

Always spay and neuter companion animals.  Prevent over-population.

Support only cruelty-free entertainment with no animal acts, rodeos, or racing. 

Speak out against blood sports (hunting, fishing, trapping, bull fighting and other animal fighting).

Always set the example for compassionate and peaceful living.  Educate yourself.  Keep improving.  Ask others to join you in your efforts.

Reality

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 01)  The caption on this photo read, "Antlers, Antlers, Antlers", as a way of attracting the trophy hunter to a "ranch" to kill a bull elk.  As can be clearly seen, these elk are being raised in a fenced in enclosure in the presence of humans, who provide for their needs.  As a result, they have lost their fear of humans, which makes them an easy target for those who kill to satisfy their egos.  This practice is evil!

 

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 02)  These captive elk were given names, as if they were "pets", which is extremely cynical, for their destiny is to be shot for "sport" by trophy hunters who have paid thousands of dollars just to be able satisfy their lust for killing.  In our opinion, these people are nothing but murders.

 

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 03)  These innocent and tame baby elk are being raised by humans so that when they are older, they will make easy targets for those who lust for blood.  Most of these canned hunting "ranches" also butcher the elk, who flesh can sell for as much as $18.00/lb.  In our opinion, this exorbitant price takes away any excuse that these people only hunt for food, for we know that people can live on a very healthful whole food vegan diet for less than $5.00/day, including gourmet fruits and vegetables.

 

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 04)  The caption on this photo of captive domesticated elk read, "Spikers reaching to heaven".  We believe that these elk are most assuredly reaching for heaven; however, at the same time, we believe that those who are involved in these captive hunts are reaching for hell.

 

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 05)  The Bible teaches us in 1 John 2:16 that the nature of the sins of this world are manifested in us as "the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life."  To us, it is obvious that those who participate in these kinds of activities are fulfilling all three of these evil characteristics, and none of the desires of our Father who is in heaven.

 

(Elk - Canned and Trophy Hunting - 06)  Hunters like this one pay between $2,500 and $15,000 to kill a captive elk, depending on the size of the elk's antlers.  We can think of no redeeming excuse for killing such a magnificent animal.  To simply kill to satisfy one's ego is evil.
