Have We Really Found the Hero in this Hunter-Mauling Story?

Letters / Anchorage Daily News / May 2, 2007

I'm writing in response to the article "Three well-placed shots end fierce mauling of hunter," printed April 18.)

Dead: a young brown bear shot for his skin as he emerged from his winter den.

Dead: the sow who shared the den as, terrified and enraged, her bloodied offspring dead at her feet, she mauled the recreational hunter who had shot him.

Recovering: from minor injuries inflicted by the sow after posing for a picture with his trophy, the recreational bear hunter.

Revered: the bear hunter's partner, a recreational wolf hunter, who killed the sow as she attacked.

Bereft: Alaskans who do not kill animals for pleasure.
