Neg­a­tive im­age of hunters

The Denver Post - - OPINION - Re: L. Wil­son,

“In­te­rior de­part­ment re­views ban on killing bear cubs and wolf pups,” July 22 news story.

Hunters are al­ways say­ing that peo­ple in the gen­eral pub­lic have a dis­torted neg­a­tive im­age of them. But af­ter read­ing this ar­ti­cle about wildlife man­age­ment, I find it hard to dis­agree with the neg­a­tive im­age. Ac­cord­ing to the ar­ti­cle, “The Trump ad­min­is­tra­tion has or­dered a re­view of fed­eral rules that pre­vent hunters from killing bears and wolves us­ing tech­niques many peo­ple con­sider ex­treme: bait­ing the an­i­mals with greasy dough­nuts, am­bush­ing moth­ers with pups in dens, and shoot­ing them from boats while the bears are swim­ming.”

This is hunt­ing? This is a pos­i­tive im­age? Where is the outcry from the good hunters? Send letters of 150 words or fewer to open­fo­rum@den­ver­ or 101 W.
