Dead deer photos

Written by Susan Mannella on .

The ghastly pictures of smiling hunters and the deer they have just killed do not belong in the city newspaper (PG Outdoors section).

Most of your readers do not enjoy stalking and killing other living things. We want to rush a bleeding, mangled animal to the nearest vet hospital; we do not kneel down beside it for pictures.

As long as hunting for amusement remains legal and you celebrate with scary photos like these, respect for all animals is undermined, animal abuse cases abound and we add to the delusion that ours is a civilized society.
