Ill explain since your having trouble. So my statement really says that my opinion of anyone shooting gulls for fun is an @#$hole ( find an asshole forum.) So forum is a general term ( just so you know) not accusing or implicating anyone of doing anything. So bringing up the topic of shooting things for fun should be discussed on a forum of (you guessed it) regardless of who is doing what to whom. See how I got my opinions across without attacking anyone in particular, on the computer, who I don't know anyway? Nice.In addition to a tough guy ( like a finger from someone has pointed and thank you I am in real life also.) Someone else please point out that I am a smart ass also. Thank you swell forum for the freedom of opinion.
seagulls in jersey are terrible. you could kill 10 per week for a year and it probably would not make a difference

Just kidding, a bit.
Seriously, there's a huge difference between killing a bear that's trying to kill your offspring and killing any animal for fun. One is defense, the other is flat-out sadism. Eat the bear or not, your call, but if it is trying to scarf down your kiddies, it's neither here nor there. Maybe you just chose a poor analogy.
The initiator of this thread made it quite clear that his associates are killing seagulls for sport. Shooting them, watching them stagger off in severe pain to die slowly & rot in the sun. These idiots think that making creatures suffer is fun, funny, enjoyable & a good way to spend their existence on this planet.
As is the norm for the forum, the thread has meandered, ahem, to be diplomatic about it.
As to the original thread starter topic: it IS black & white. It's so black & white that there's federal laws, state laws & local laws against killing seagulls; in particular, it's a felony. Aside from the laws, the very act of torturing / destroying one of God's creatures for laughter & 'fun' is an abomination.
The superior species, eh?
Those seagull torturers should be taken out & allowed to roam Raspberry Island, naked, with bloody steaks strapped to their arses. Equal time for the bears up there, yes? Let those men see what it feels like when a Kodiak bear turns them into lasagna.

Bear, yes, personally I love bear. Black bears were so prevalent when I was a teen in PA that hunting them was quite common place, never had brown, I imagine it tastes the same depending on what it was eating. Course, at my folks' place in the Poconos, I have literally taken a wild turkey with a 12 from the back deck. It's a pretty big spread. Mt. Pocono Jr. High made you go out and pull bear molars and take paw castings every fall in science class back in the day, wonder if they still make the kids do that? The bears eat so many blue berries in the bogs and black berries that it dyes their intestines a dark purple. Tastes so good. F.I.L. got a black last fall in OR using a .54 black powder single shot at 20-25 yards. Went through the last of that fella round March. Dog is greasy and not too tasty. Tasted it once in the P.I. Not my cup of tea. Would be game to try wolf. Kind of think it would taste like dog though except leaner and kind of more funky since they eat carrion. Eat anything once. You know what tastes really good and is kind of out there, fruit bat. There's a reason why those critters are endangered or extinct on certain islands. Tried that in Bali back in the early 90's, oh man, right up there with giant clam, raw gulf oysters, rabbit (prefer rabbits I raised to wild) and coconut crab. Anyway, ethical hunters hunt game when it's in season, don't harvest more than they need and do their best to ensure that the animal is killed and then treated afterwards in the most humanely and respectful manner. Shooting critters is fun, but doing it for fun, that's different and wrong.
