Hunters spark outrage after killing ‘spirit moose’ on Cape Breton Highlands trip

Ugh. This is a damn shame, though it seems to have happened out of ignorance. I hope that some good can come of it somehow.
I was saddened by this story. However, as someone who tries to call attention to issues involving animals on the Animal Anarchy page on Facebook, I am disturbed by comments which suggest that all hunters deserve to have terrible things happen to them. There are some irresponsible and callous hunters, but not all hunters can be painted with the same brush.
Extremism generally accomplishes nothing. Encouraging responsible and ethical hunting will accomplish a far better result than condemning hunters across the board.
