AMHERST MAN BAGS ELUSIVE CANADIAN WOLF

4/12/04

Dear Buffalo News:

"Amherst man bags elusive Canadian wolf" (4/11/04 presents cowardice as adventure.

Like child and spousal abusers, hunters claim to have a "special connection" with their victims.

Robert Cimato's victim had eluded serial animal killers for 5 years, but no targeted animal can evade human evil indefinitely. Cimato did not "bring home a wolf." He invaded a Canadian wolf's home, killed him, and dragged the corpse of this once magnificent animal to New York.

The killing guide asked "no questions about his [Cimato's] gear, stamina, hunting and shooting experience." Hardly surprising, since guides exist to guarantee sissy hunters a kill.

Cimato is quoted as saying that, as a child, he drew pictures of wolves. How unfortunate for the wolves, and for Cimato's character, that he could not find satisfaction in creatively depicting wolves' beauty, rather than in killing the first live wolf he encountered.

Cimato "spent much of his youth in boxing rings." Apparently fairly competing against a willing, equally armed partner was too frightening for Cimato.

The wolf killed by Cimato had been insultingly named "Jim," after another hunter who tormented him for 5 years, scarring his face. Cimato imposed yet another name on "Jim," after murdering him.

Cimato feels a "bond" with the wolf he killed, because they both have facial scars. What would the wolf feel for the rapacious humans who scarred and killed him?
