C.A.S.H. Letters

THE AUBURN CROW SHOOT

The abomination of a crow-killing contest makes it imperative for communities and states across the country to get into the business of “wildlife watching.” Wildlife watching is a billion dollar industry that basically can’t soar due to the stranglehold that the hunters have over wildlife management agencies and many law makers. It’s quite clear that the public needs change.

The market for wildlife watching is already here. It needs to be nurtured, encouraged, and not blended in with hunting or relegated to a sideshow. Hunters pose a risk to viewers of wildlife and, quite frankly, frighten or gross out the public.

The sales of canoes, kayaks, tree stands, blinds, would boom big time if wildlife watching programs were allowed to exist.

Locally, the money and tourism that would flow into Auburn to view the crows that grace the area would be far more beneficial than anything gained from a few sots blasting at crows with shotguns.

And, just look at where the firearms money goes – it goes to the wildlife management agencies to increase wildlife for hunting!

What a waste of financial resources and God’s creation.

Anne Muller, President
Wildlife Watch, Inc.
