    Hiker fatally shot by bear hunter
    OSO, Wash. - Skagit county authorities say a young hunter mistook a hiker for a bear and shot her.
    That's pretty much the story. You would think that rational people would recognize this as an unfortunate accident. Not here. There's some denial and typical calls for government to protect hikers from hunters.

    She was shot and killed for other reasons.

    Who the fuck mistakes a 54 year old woman for a bear?

    Get real.

    50. Thanks. I guess we'll just have to wait on the official report. I hope the adult and 18 yr old

    hunter are prosecuted.
    Then the thread takes a turn for the bizarre, thanks to defendandprotect:

    My shoes . . . as much as possible . . . are fabric --

    Animal-eating and animal-slaughter came in with patriarchy and "Manifest Destiny" ---

    neither of which has done us anything but harm ---

    In that light, I think it all needs to be ended.

    Meanwhile, there is no "sport" in this kind of hunting down an animal and anyone

    suggesting so is delusional ---

    And . . . animal killing and eating came in with patriarchy and patriarchal violence.

    Animal-eating is making everyone ill -- is making the planet ill ---
    ...
    As for the patriarchal licenses to exploit --- "Manifest Destiny" and "Man's Dominion

    Over Nature" they have brought us genocide and slavery --- oppression of women --

    and Global Warming which is a fatally serious threat to our species and the planet.


    Lots of randomness at the thread. Mostly anti NRA and anti-hunting.

    Defendandprotect must have read a book on Manifest Destiny] lately as he blames a hunting accident on it.

    I'm not sure what he/she/it means by making us sick but I feel fine. I've been eating meat all my life. I do agree to a point about sport hunting. I don't see any point to hunting unless it is to thin out overpopulation or to acquire food.

    I do my hunting at the meat counter, you don't have to worry with the butchering.:)

    Hey depend-and-project, take it up with all those damn right wing animals eating each other. I keep trying to give them PETA fliers but they're always like, "grrrrowl" and giving me that fascist carnivore attitude. ...Stupid patriarchal cheetahs 'n shit.

    Not quite as good, but, if the person at the ATM had a larger caliber hand gun, the outcome would be saving the tax payers of KC some money http://www.kansascity.com/115/story/731604.html

    If you read the comments on the page, there are some from the bleeding heart left which are quickly put down.

    I don't understand this comment at all.

    Animal eating is as old as the human race...actually older if you count carnivorous animal species. What's this "Manifest destiny" nonsense?

    DU stupidity aside, you NEVER point your gun at something you don't want to kill and you NEVER point your gun at something unless you are 100% certain of your target.

    PERIOD.

    One of the other inmates pointed this out. To which the moonbat replied that misogyny has occurred since the beginning of history (herstory?) when we started eating meat.

    Kind of a chicken and the egg type of thing, only stupid.
