WWW Interview Gabriel Mcroberts

 

On October 25, about 20 students took an airplane to Puerto Montt and then took a bus to Huilo Huilo, a biological reserve located in the south of Chile. The reserve contains a huge variety of Flora and Fauna in the beautiful rainforest. Most of these animals are taken care of and incredibly important to the environment. Although there is one enemy to the natural park; The Warthog. The Warthog invaded Huilo Huilo as a foreign animal that destroys a lot of the conservative and harms a lot of the animals. The problem is, guides from the nature park kill the Warthog, whether it’s a baby or a grown Warthog, harming or not.

 

In the following interview I will interrogate Gabriel Mcroberts, a student of the International School Nido de Aguilas. The following questions will involve what he thinks about the situation of Huilo Huilo.

 

1. What do you think think about killing the Warthogs like that?

First of all, I’m very against killing animals in general. Secondly, I think that it’s totally disrespectful to treat animals like, even if they are aggressive; that’s their nature. Also, I think that we would feel totally different if we were treated like that.

2. What are solutions you could think of instead of killing them?

I don’t think they should be treated in any abusive or manipulative way by us.

3. What are advantages of killing them?

To try to put myself in the hunters’ shoes, I would say that they could provide food, less hunger, and maybe less violence in our nature.

A big problem would be extinction. Also, there’s a chance that we could turn hunting into something else, something more violence.

4. Disadvantages of killing them?

A big problem would be extinction. Also, there’s a chance that we could turn hunting into something else, something more violence.
