Newspaper Prints Letter Advocating Killing Hunters

Shameful is the word that comes to mind for the Burlington Free Press and its decision to print a reader's anti-hunting letter, "Take a few hunters along with the moose," that was written in response to the Vermont paper's story about the opening of moose hunting season.

The letter was placed in the newspaper's online letters section as well and has now been taken down after responses from outraged readers. Hunters and non-hunters alike should chastise the paper for its decision to run the letter, and take the opportunity to educate readers about the role hunting plays in wildlife management. It would be nice to see Vermont's fish and wildlife department weigh in, explaining that trained wildlife biologists determine how to best maintain the state's moose population.

Here's the letter:

Take a Few Hunters Along with the Moose

On this beautiful day we learn that about 1,251 hunters are taking to the woods with legal permits to "pursue prized quarry." Certainly the members of various humane organizations do not approve. I suggest that before the next annual killing season, other residents be awarded legal permits to kill hunters who will be out to kill these beautiful, non-destructive animals. Or the government could just rule out all this primitive killing.

ETHAN A.H. SIMS
Shelburne

Here's the apology from the newspaper's editorial page director that appears online and which had better be in the letters section of tomorrow's print edition:

Today's letters to the editor included a letter about the annual moose hunt ("Take a few hunters along with the moose") that violates the statdards [sic] of the Free Press by advocating for violence against hunters. The letter has been taken down. We apologize for our error in judgement.

Aki Soga
Editorial page editor
The Burlington Free Press

While local readers' complaints have forced an apology, you may want to weigh in with your own letter to the editor. Send to letters@bfp.burlingtonfreepress.com

I always will remember,
’twas a year ago November,
I went out to hunt some deer
On a mornin’ bright and clear.
I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow,
Two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow.

Someone should show her what Subarus look like after they collide with a moose.

Human life > critter life

The bioligists that determine how many moose can be harvested annually know what they're doing.

Ethen A.H. Simms is one of those 'hairy mouth', (if you look at the roof of their mouth, you can see the roots of their hair), libtards who don't understand game management, ie hunting. He's never seen the 'magnificent noble beasties' starve to death from over-competition for the availabe food supply.

What a waste of oxygen.....

Link Posted: 10/28/2009 2:13:41 PM EST
I've often wondered what would happen if a person were to put "moose in heat" scent all over their own clothing accidentally, somehow, like maybe they mistook their hunting scents for cologne or the bottles got mixed-up or something. It would sure be a stupid mistake, but I guess it could happen.

Actually, printing that letter makes the paper look pretty pro-hunting, as it makes the writer look like a moron.

This person is a professor?! Good grief a complete fool. I would be willing to bet he praises primitive cultures when talking out one side of his mouth and then bemoans "primitive killing" here out the other side. Surely this sort of advocacy of violence can get a professor fired despite tenure.

Great idea, if there are any UVM students here, or elsewhere this story gets reposted to. And honestly, if I were a student I really wouldn't feel safe going to a school that hires or keeps on staff faculty who write letters to the local newspaper advocating killing people because they hunt.
