Brenda Peterson Howls Out Against Wolf Hunts

BEI Emeritus Fellow, Brenda Peterson recently was featured on the Soundcloud page,”Your Life is a Book,” in a segment entitled “Honorable Hunters Howl Out Against Wolf Hunts.” This spurred from an article Peterson had published in the Huffington Post in 2014. The Opening line of that article reads:

“I am a hunter’s daughter who grew up eating the sweet, lean meat of wild game. In our U.S. Forest Service cabin in the High Sierra, we grew strong on elk and venison. Every meal we said grace to God, not the animals whose bodies fed us. I assumed that God, like my father, must be a hunter. I have deep respect for the skilled hunter who has a keen knowledge of nature; who can track, patiently wait, and sustainably hunt for his family.”
