All I know is that humane hunting involves trying to kill the animal as quickly as possible to minimize suffering. Is this like that?

The article didn’t make it clear, are they using live rounds or ‘less than lethal’ rounds? (Rubber bullets.) If they are using rubber bullets I would assume that humanely means aiming at the ground so that protestors are hit with ricochet, not straight from the barrel impact.

Yeah…ummm…that translates into “head shot” boys. Little to no suffering. When I hunt I do so ‘humanely’ and put it down quickly.
