People believe hunting and fishing is not a crime, but just a hobby. This was found in the course of a survey, conducted by Meetville (dating app to find the right person).
The following question was posed: “What is your attitude towards hunting and fishing?”. The results show that 73% of respondents consider these activities recreational, the remaining 27% believe they’re inhumane.
The survey was held from 5/14/14 to 8/4/14 and polled 51,969 people. From the USA – 67%, from Canada – 3%, from Britain – 9%, Australia – 6% and other countries – 15%.
According to Mark Damian Duda, co-author “The Sportsman’s Voice”, “The fact that support for hunting and fishing remains strong shows that the wildlife profession is doing a good job of getting the message out there that hunting and fishing are important.” Being outdoors with friends and family, doing something you enjoy is something everyone understands.
Men and women are equally represented in their belief that hunting and fishing are inhumane, male – 51%, female – 49%. Yet the opposite is much more dominated by male opinion, male – 67%, female – 33%.
According to Alex Cusper, Meetville service analyst, because men are the ones who usually go hunting or fishing, women are more inclined to take the opposite side and engage in animal-oriented activities.
