This letter is in reference to Betty Whiteaker's Nov. 29 letter ["Why do men enjoy killing animals?"].
I am assuming that Ms. Whiteaker is a vegetarian based on her reference to killing animals. As this may be
The sport reference to hunting is biased. Men and women have been hunting and eating meat for centuries--not for sport, but for survival.
We fill our freezer with deer meat every year, and take pride in the ability to provide our own meat. The meat is organic and healthful, and the animal was not mistreated in a slaughterhouse.
My advice to Ms. Whiteaker is that a little more research into an obviously unknown topic would be a good thing. To The Free Lance-Star, thank you for recognizing deer hunting, not as a sport, but as a way to feed a family.
