What is wrong with this picture?

When a dying kid's wish is to kill

A nonprofit helps terminally ill children with the unusual -- and to some, alarming -- dream of hunting an animal

If you're dying wish is to murder an animal, then your death is not tragic; it's too late!! I'm sorry you have cancer, but leave the animals alone. What if I had cancer, and my dying wish was to shoot a kid who's dying wish is to shoot an animal? Where's my foundation? According to this article, the Make-A-Wish Foundation will no longer arrange for these hunting trips, because an animal rights activist got to them, which implies that they used to do it! WTF? I'm gonna start a foundation to help ill children with the unusual, and to some, alarming dreams that I personally approve of. My Manifesto will be coming out soon, and frankly, I can use a small army of kamikazi children to take out anyone (adults mostly) who get in my way.

This is horrific (the topic, not your post). Even growing up around it, I don't understand hunting. It's always seemed like the type of thing that you would grow up, mature, learn about the world and realize the error of your ways, and stop hunting. Hunters seem to get more blood-thirsty with age, though.

Wow, this is probably the most ignorant post I have ever read.

Hunting is part of this child's family, and if he wants to get one last hunt, he should. After all, this animal isn't "innocent". As a carnivore, it kills other animals regularly. Why don't you protest the horrendous "murder" of innocent animals by the bear? And don't give me that "animals don't kill for sport" BS. Dolphins, Foxes, Cats, Dogs, and Raptors (bird type, not dinosaur) have been known to kill and then not eat weaker, non dangerous prey, thus making the only possible reason for that killing "sport".

It is disgusting that you would refuse to grant a child who has lived on this Earth for far too short of a time a wish that he wants, solely based on some whacked up form of political correctness masquerading as "compassion". To downplay the death of a human in order to play up the tragedy of a born-killer animal is absolutely disgusting.

Please, think before you act. You're the reason why nobody takes animal rights activists seriously.

Dear "anonymous" ,
If this is the most ignorant post you've ever read, you don't read much.
why are you hiding behind "anonymous"? because you don't want people to know that you are all for dying children killing animals?
If the bear could go to whole foods and buy good vegan food, maybe it would. and if the kid wanted to kill the bear with his bare hands, then that would be a different story.
I 'm also for the rights of CHILDREN, and that includes the right to grow up in a house where other sentient beings are not killed for sport. Hunting was part of Sarah Palin's family too, and look how she turned out!
