Today, most of our human society "hunts" in the frozen food aisle rather than the woods. The food comes to us, instead of us "killing" the food. Personally, "killed by mine own hand" trumps "USDA choice".
By removing wildlife population management (through regulated hunting and trapping), you are essentially flipping the proverbial coin to decide which species outlast nature's fury. Will those who decry hunting and promote a "hands-off" approach to wildlife conservation readily accept the outcome of those decisions? What if one's hatred for the regulated take of wildlife through hunting and trapping meant sacrificing wildlife diversity for future enjoyment? Are we collectively satisfied with the regular scraping of decaying fox carcasses off our lawns?
For most, the consistent calls to ban hunting and the over-exaggerated criticisms of trapping activities just comes off as an attempt to intimidate, dominate, and control a narrative. But more recently, the activism derived locally has pushed far from promoting a message of opposition to hunting and trapping, and mutated into a brutal campaign against hunters and trappers - individually.
