I am confused about whether I can be for hunting, but still be a vegetarian. I know this sounds really dumb, but I don't know what to think about hunting. Being a vegetarian, I want to stop animal suffering, right? But in Wisconsin, there is an over population of deer. If there wasn't any hunting, many of the deer would starve to death due to the lack of food. If the deer have a lack of food, then they could start raiding the gardens wherevegetables are grown in causing us (vegetarians humans) to have less food. Also, with an over population many deer would be without shelter, so they might freeze to death. Therefore, shooting them (that sounds really horrible and sad) might benifit them in the long run so they do not suffer of starvation or die in the cold weather. Also, we would not run out of food. I might be totally off on this, but it all seems logical. I really do oppose animal killing, don't get me wrong there. I am just confused on what to believe.
