8 Year Old Girl Shoots Bear

Well, I've been really dicgusted lately after hearing about this recent story, have you heard about this yet? It's been on the news and everything, it's just despicable beyond words... this girl's parents should be arrested for child abuse... she admits to skipping school to do it, too!

Girl, 8, Credited With Year's 1st Bear Kill

2 Rounds Did In the 211-Pound Animal, Third-Grader From Western Md. Says

MOUNT NEBO, Md., Oct. 24 -- There's a new hunting legend in the mountains of Western Maryland.

Born to the woods, she's 4 1/2 feet tall and 8 years old, with a shock of light brown hair and a steady trigger finger that put two bullets into a black bear's chest cavity Monday, according to her and her father and granduncle, who were hunting with her. State officials backed the claim by Sierra Stiles and credited her with the first kill of Maryland's second bear season since hunting the animals resumed after a half-century ban.

I'm just sickened beyond words...

...Those people know no bounds of wretchedness. This is how desperate hunters have become in recent years, society is advancing in its morals and hunters know that their numbers are shrinking steadily to extinction, so they are desperately recruiting anyone they can into their filthy ranks, so their lobbying is targeting women, even children to try and save their bloody cause.

Hearing that child's heartless insensitivity towards animals, and unawareness of how cruel her actions were, reminds me a lot of that shocking story on the news a few years ago about young Muslim children in Saudi Arabia being taught to hate Jews.


A 3-year old girl said (very articulately) that Jews were "apes and pigs" because she was obviously brainwashed by her fanatic parents to believe so. It's the same with the story on the news now of the young twin singers from Bakersfield, Ca that sing racist naziistic white supremacy songs because of their mother's early implantation of racist bigotry in their minds.


Children are born innocent, and fair and considerately equal in their treatment of everyone depending on how those others treat them, but it's parents that have to teach them biased hatred and unfair treatment towards others for no reason.

...As with animals, most children early on display a natural awe, admiration and compassion for animals, from dogs to frogs to bugs to lizards, most children have a fascination and love for all things great and small. I know I did.

...It's the parents that have to teach them pointless cruelty that implants an evil in their mind that corrupts them for the rest of their lives. It's a crime that parents that are addicted to sadism are allowed to pass on their mental illness onto their children by forcing cruelty into their minds at an early age. When I was younger, I loved frogs, lizards, and snakes, and I was disgusted and angered by how other kids my age always just seemed to want to kill them the moment they saw them just for a sick laugh.

This is because their parents put guns in their hands and taught them early on that animals are things to kill, not things to be fascinated and enthralled by.
