The annual seal hunt media coverage this winter has brought a thought to my mind. In nature, there are many hunter/prey relationships: coyotes/rabbits, eagles/fish, lions/gazelles, and so forth. It is a natural occurrence. Even omnivorous (such as bears and raccoons) animal hunt.
Humans are not any different. Or are they? Are we at a point in our civilisation that hunting is no longer necessary? Should a hunting relationship be maintained?
