Assistance Dogs = Blood Sport?[edit]

It has been much discussed that the inclusion of all hunting (rather than trophy hunting or sport hunting perhaps) is over-inclusive. The fact that "assistance dogs" is included on the blood sports page, if one opens the menus, makes this argument perhaps better than any text on this talk page. I am going to leave it as it is, but even the most ardent anti-hunting advocate would agree that traditional subsistence hunting is not properly a blood sport. If it is, then the term looses much of its original meaning. Perhaps a more careful selection of pages would avoid some of the absurdities like linking to seeing eye dogs on the blood sports page.--Counsel 17:42, 23 October 2006 (UTC)
