Turkey hunting - California stye

Here's how they hunt wild turkeys in California:

County OK's youth turkey hunt - again

Some interesting excerpts:

Both proposals drew the ire of environmentalists and animal-rights activists. They took issue with children firing weapons on an open-space preserve as well as the impression it might give them that slaughter was preferable to nonviolent solutions.

"Children firing weapons." Can't have that on a turkey hunt for youth. Nope.

But here's the best one: "... that slaughter was preferable to non-violent solutions."

How can you have a non-violent 'solution' to a turkey dinner? No matter how you cut it, the turkey is going to find it violent. Unless ... maybe they want to give the turkeys lethal injections? Would that be considered a 'peaceful' end to the turkey? How would that sit with NCADP?
