Hunters Use Every Part Of The Animal They Kill

I’m sure that any animal who is shot through the head or body would be really pleased to know every part of his or her rotting corpse will be used for someone’s meal, belt, or wall ornament. Using every part of the animal does not make up for killing them in the first place. If […]
