The Horror Of Boar Hunting
BY ANNE MULLER
You may know from reading other issues of the C.A.S.H. Courier that
children who’ve been taught to hunt have been implicated in some high
profile crimes. We all remember (well, most of us), “The Jonesboro
Massacre.” Andrew Golden and Mitchell Johnson killed their classmates and
teacher. C.A.S.H. has written about this subject over the years, and you
will find many of our articles online. Hog hunting is considered a “starter”
activity for children. It encourages the enjoyment of killing using any and
I first became aware of how horrific the hunting of porcine animals was
when a dear friend, who abhorred hunting, said that his son-in-law (who
didn’t share his values) went with some friends on a boar hunting trip. He
reported back that he was shocked when he saw his friends stab a boar 200
times. They were all drunk, laughing, jumping on him while they stabbed him
to death. This is completely LEGAL.
Of all of the worst nightmares that you can imagine for hunted or killed
animals, boar hunting has got to top the list.
This pure killing is described as a starter for children to learn the
joys of killing – they leave out the word “torture,” but it is implicit and
deeply embedded in this legal act.
The magazine Boar Hunter was passed along to me by someone who
does boar rescue, so the gruesome articles and photographs must have pained
her tremendously, though not as much as what happens to the boars. Even the
NRA should be ashamed to advertise in this magazine….but they aren’t.
They advertise videos with titles that range from Doggin’ Boars
to Watch Shane Take On 14 Boars with Bow, Pistol, Rifle, Dog, and
Knife. The youngest children can participate.
A couple of photos in this magazine look like this
Here is just one paragraph from this sick journal:
A “hog hunter” describes how to kill a hog:
“The majority of quartering away shots will hit a lung and if you are
lucky your arrow will damage the liver on its way there. A damaged liver
will help bleed a boar out…”
This killing that can’t even pretend to be “hunting” seems to have
another component. A telling photo and caption are below.
Note the connection to the “Confederate Army, Ala.”
Yes, folks, this is beyond killing boars or hogs sadistically.
Here’s some hog-hunter talk below from the following website:
Q. What’s the DEC stance on hog whacking? Non-game, no closed season,
or off limits?
A1. Good luck and hunt right at night fall, they get real active
right after dark. Slick.
A2. Non-game, no season, no limit. All you need is a valid NY hunting
license. DEC would rather they do not spread. Though I think it is a little
too late for that?
Q. Alright, twist my arm, bear, you win, when do we go whack them?
LOL [means laugh out loud].
