Dear Editor

Dear Editor:

To the hunters of Lee County: How can the killing of game animals be called a Recreational Sport? Many descendants of Bambi are mounted to demonstrate hunting skills of the hunter. Even children are taught and encouraged to kill for sport and pleasure. Is this practice really necessary?

Morally there are two principal reason for killing animals -- for food and the protection of crops and livestock. Please rethink your position on this issue. In good conscience, can we say it is fun and brings pleasure when killing is unnecessary?
