Couldn't watch it all. Too long.
Good take. Agree with 95% of their points.
1)While they hit the nail on the head about the anthropormorphizing of animals and how this leads to the bunny-huggers, they turn right around and do the same thing by attaching negative human qualities ("ferocious", "mean", "murdering" cubs, etc., etc., etc.) to the lion. Animals are animals. Lions kill. Gazelles get eaten. Fish swim. Anything attached to their actions from a human emotional standpoint is just human mental gymnastics. There are not "good" animals or "bad" animals. There are just animals. They do what God wired them to do.
Antis are full of BS when they get mad at hunters for shooting the "pretty animals".
By the same token, we hunters shouldn't try and justify hunting Class A predators because they are "ferocious, mean murderers".
We hunt animals because we are wired to do so. Conservation benefits greatly from hunting.
2)I'm not a prude, but all the cussing was unnecessary and counterproductive in a video designed to enhance public awareness on behalf of hunting.

I learned long ago you can't reason someone out of something they don't reason themselves into.
