Why is this state so effed up? How embarrassing, but not surprising.

Exposing the Big Game

Normally I would feel sorry for a girl born with a rare heart disease that requires her to get both a heart and liver transplant. But when 11 year old Kaitlynn Bessette of Stetsonville, Wisconsin, shot a 335 pound black bear through the heart, she lost all my sympathy.

Why is it that when some people suffer adversity they feel the need to take it out on others? And what is going on in the mind of a pre-teenaged girl that makes her want to kill a magnificent animal like a bear anyway? How can a person who knows all too well what it’s like to be the target of undeserved misfortune say, “I felt thankful, like really thankful I shot a bear”? Are kids today reading or watching too many stories, such as “The Hunger Games,” where the heroin is a huntress? Or maybe they’re playing too many violent…

    It’s the parents looking for sympathy and attention. How disgusting.

    Goodness sakes! Who knew that killing an innocent bear was going to make everything all better? Wow! I never realized that our healthcare system was so bad that now we have to start harvesting organs from our wildlife! Shame on them. (Please understand that I’m not making light of this at all, I just wanted to point out the absurdity of it.)

    For the life of me…I can’t understand how any good can come out of teaching children to kill animals.
    Start a new family “tradition”

      That is the rural mindset in much of the country. There is no respect for animals and they are viewed as something to be exploited. This child got a second chance at life and celebrated by blowing away an animal. The parents and the group that provide this garbage are disgusting. So is ABC for writing a fluffy article about it. We are really regressing as a species.
