Animal Writes
From 27 February 2005 Issue

I suspect that if you are anything like me, you have gotten into debates with hunters from time to time - hunters who have told you that you are over-emotional and have a "Bambi" mentality. I always wonder what happened to these hunters - what blocked their own emotions where it applied to animals. Empathy seems to have eluded them. And though I don't know that Disney can be credited with triggering empathy, it does occur to me that since so many hunters fear "Bambi" so much, maybe those of us who do care about the animals would be helping to build a more empathetic world if we take advantage of Disney's cartoon feature - "Bambi."

Disney is currently offering one of their periodic redistributions of "Bambi" on DVD, which is a relatively inexpensive way to influence the next generation. Buy it now, and you can donate it to your local school and/or library. Buy one for yourself and invite the neighborhood children in for a "Bambi" party.

The hunters condemn it, so it must be good, right?
