Hunting humans could become big tourism for super rich
Hunting can be a controversial pastime, but we should all agree that however you feel about animal rights, human beings should be off limits.
Still, there's a lecturer in the UK who has a very grim look at the future of tourism. And he's not describing hotels without room service or planes with even less leg room.
In the not-so-distant future, he believes rich people will hunt poor people for fun or sport.
Daniel Wright is a senior lecturer in tourism and wrote about his thoughts in a scientific journal called Futures.
He says that Earth's population is going to put more and more stress on the planet and that the disparity between the super rich and the rest of the population is only to get worse.

Going into more detail, Wright thinks by 2100, the world's wealthiest people will be able to hunt human beings and by 2200 he thinks it will be legal and even televised.
That may not be so far-fetched. If you think about it, the Colosseum wasn't that long ago, and things got ugly.
Then again, these predictions aren't entirely new. Many 10th graders have made similar claims after reading "The Most Dangerous Game" in English class.
