This video, produced by the National Wildlife Federation, explains some of the issues raised by commercialized, or canned, deer and elk hunting. Not only is canned hunting unethical, but also it spreads disease among the contained animal populations, which they transmit to wild herds as well.
Recently in Indiana, the Board of Animal Health found tuberculosis among several captive cervid herds. It is time to put an end to canned hunting for wildlife's sake, and for the sake of all outdoors enthusiasts.
