Letter of the Day: Wildlife's hell

  • With deer and wild pig populations exploding around Lake Sonoma, The Sonoma County Water Agency has initiated a bow hunting program. Jayson Collard, along with his dog Maliki, guides the hunters into previously inaccessible land above Lake Sonoma.

<b>Wildlife's hell</b>

EDITOR: I found Friday's article about hunting at Lake Sonoma ("Hunter's paradise") so disturbing — not a great way to start my day. The thought of opening up the mostly wild Lake Sonoma preserve to hunters saddens me greatly. So how wonderful that one hunter killed one buck and now there are five more available to hunters. Oh, and the pigs are a lot easier to kill because they don't see well. Innocent wildlife once again suffers so that mankind can have the thrill of killing unarmed victims. This article should have been headlined "Hunter's paradise — wildlife's hell."
