Letter: Trophy hunting a ‘barbaric practice’

…perhaps [hunting guides] would do better by guiding people with cameras rather than rifles.

Open letter to the Honourable Christy Clark:

You can add my voice to the growing list of British Columbians fed up with trophy hunting in this province. It is a disgusting and barbaric practice perpetrated by a minority of depraved individuals trying to bolster their egos at the expense of helpless animals.

I realize a number of people depend on the income generated by this despicable practice but just perhaps they would do better by guiding people with cameras rather than rifles. This type of tourism certainly has been a success as applied to whales on our west coast.

I implore you in the name of decency to curtail this inhumane practice.
