Brenda Peterson’s Essay is Focal Point of new Article

BEI Emeritus Fellow, Brenda Peterson’s essay, “Growing up Game” was recently used in an article posted on “Studybreaks,” advocating for the sustainability and moral good of hunting. In the article, the author points out the way in which hunting is a more personal connection to your food, as well as the fact that it is a more environmentally sound means of getting your meat than from the grocery store. The author quotes part of Peterson’s essay saying “She tells a story about her college roommates who raved about her meatballs made from moose. They would have “recoiled” she (Peterson) says, if they had known the meatballs weren’t beef… “Why should it be that the purchase of meat at the butchershop is somehow more righteous than eating something wild.”
