A BILL IN KENTUCKY'S GENERAL ASSEMBLY WOULD BAN COMPUTER-AIDED HUNTING BEFORE IT EVER GETS STARTED IN THE BLUEGRASS STATE.
NEW TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS HUNTERS TO SIT AT A COMPUTER, CLICK A MOUSE AND FIRE A REMOTE-CONTROLLED RIFLE TO SHOOT AN ANIMAL.
OPPONENTS OF THE PRACTICE SAY IT'S NOT A SPORT AND SHOULD BE BANNED.
KENTUCKY IS PART OF A PACK OF STATES TO CONSIDER LEGISLATION TO BAR HUNTERS FROM USING THE INTERNET TO SHOOT ANIMALS.
THIS NEW WAY OF HUNTING BEGAN ON A TEXAS WEBSITE.
TEXAS LAWMAKERS RESPONDED BY PASSING LEGISLATION LAST YEAR THAT BANNED SUCH OPERATIONS.
