The Wild WoodsWoman comments today on the recent news about a huntress in Minnesota killing an albino deer.
She makes an interesting point:
I don't blame her for doing it, but I don't think I could personally do it. I've read too any fiction stories where there's a mystical white animal that appears in the forest and has special powers!! It would be bad karma I think.When I first saw this yesterday, I wondered aloud if I would've shot that deer. My boyfriend sagely noted, "Well if you hadn't, someone else would've, so you might as well."
I don't necessarily agree. Think I'd've rather shot this one with my camera, not my gun.
But I definitely don't agree with the somewhat hysterical blogger who ranted yesterday:
So this fat, ugly, smelly woman is proud of killing an albino deer. How sad her life must be. May be she’ll get lucky and some hunter shoots a bullet through her head. But…that’s not going to happen. Her head is too ugly to mount.Lay off the caffeine, I say.
