    Why are you opposed to freedom of speech? Fill us in.

    Asking someone to stop, hell, even outright telling someone to shut up, does not equate to preventing their free speech.

    Only if your forcibly prevent them from speaking does it reach that point.

    Quite true.

    But it's at least plausible and somewhat reasonable, especially if they made use of the carcass in some way (were there any details on that?).

    Better than randomly killing animals just because you can.

    It's kinda like how here in PA, the Pennsylvania Game Commission issues limited numbers of hunting licenses for specific types of animals during specific seasons - thereby using willing volunteers to control the deer/bear/whatever populations.

    And there exist fines and punishments for people who kill said animals out of season or in an unapproved manner (there exceptions for everything, of course, like handicapped hunters being allowed to use transportation to some degree, whereas everyone else must walk.

    At least on state game lands. Privately owned land is basically up to the owner.

    Wrong.
    If you don't like what someone is saying don't listen to them.

    Telling someone to shut up is trying to silence them and cut off their free speech rights.
