A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"Joyful Curmudgeon" An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.


The Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting – 8 June 2008
By Mary T. Hoffman

We just returned from attending the annual meeting of The Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting, a division of Wildlife Watch, Inc. For many years we have been supporters of this excellent organization which was founded by Luke A. Dommer. Anne and Peter Muller continue to work tirelessly “to save wild animals, the environment, and general public from the silent economy that encourages and preys on the passion of a few to kill the wildlife that belongs to all.”

Among their many accomplishments this past year, is their quashing of a proposal to establish a canned hunt operation of white deer. Another is the promotion of wildlife watching as an alternative “recreation enjoyment of wildlife.” Having been a Girl Scout many years ago, I was especially happy to see that they were able to convince the Girl Scouts of the USA to call off a Girl Scout hunt in Minnesota.

Also present at this meeting was Joe Miele, the new C.A.S.H. president, through whose efforts a comprehensive database of hunting accidents around the country has been collected from published media accounts that proves that hunting is far from safe.
