C.A.S.H. Letters

Response to letter referencing Biblical scripture

Re: Kill The Bears... And deer and rabbits

12 September 2007

Dear M.D. Yandach:

Thank you for contacting the Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting.

In your message to us, you wrote: "God put them on earth to feed humans. He even designed our tooth structure to consume meat. So it it written... so it shall be done."

If you look at our teeth you will see that they more closely resemble those of horses and cows (strict herbivores) than they do cats and sharks (strict carnivores).

And while I am not a Biblical scholar by any means, I do know that the Bible says "Behold, I have given you every herb-yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree that has seed-yielding fruit -- to you it shall be for food." (Gen.1:29) Where the Bible first mentions what we should eat, it does not mention animals or animal products.

I don't claim to know whether or not there is a God, but I do know that wildlife is terribly exploited by state hunting agencies and that exploitation is done for profit. That's wrong, and it is something that we intend to stop.

We understand that many people do not share our opinion when it comes to sport hunting, trapping and the role state and federal wildlife agencies play in creating many of the problems associated with wildlife. We hope that in time, as you continue to read The C.A.S.H. Courier and website, you will change your opinion and come to share our views.
