Rural people tend to be more in touch with nature than their urban cousins. The same is true of rural cultures. In a strict sense, no member of Inuit society needs to hunt seals today - certainly not for "environmental" reasons - so should we tolerate such "uncivilised" behaviour? I think we should.
On Christmas Day I shall sit down with my family to enjoy the pleasant ritual of devouring a turkey, a bird that is reared to be killed to provide recreational food. Should I eschew such a barbaric glorification of death - or would it be enough merely to order that nobody enjoys the lunch?
