L. Lyons: Baiting isn’t hunting


The definition of hunting is: To chase or search for, to scour in pursuit of game.

The definition of baiting is: To entice by deception or trickery as to entrap or destroy; to set dogs upon an animal for sport.

Placing a bunch of stale Twinkies and doughnuts in the woods in order to shoot a bear, which most people don’t even eat, is deplorable.

Hunting is one thing (at least the animal has a chance); baiting is an entirely different thing.

I will be voting “yes” on Question 1.
