Vermont professor advocates killing hunters

Here is a letter to the editor of the Burlington Free Press from a UVM professor of medicine. It's clearly a recommendation to take the lives of moose hunters. This fascist needs to lose his job and his medical license. Ask no quarter - give no quarter.

Take a Few Hunters Along with the Moose

On this beautiful day we learn that about 1,251 hunters are taking to the woods with legal permits to "pursue prized quarry." Certainly the members of various humane organizations do not approve. I suggest that before the next annual killing season, other residents be awarded legal permits to kill hunters who will be out to kill these beautiful, non-destructive animals. Or the government could just rule out all this primitive killing.

Here's the apology from the newspaper's editorial page director.

Today's letters to the editor included a letter about the annual moose hunt ("Take a few hunters along with the moose") that violates the statdards [sic] of the Free Press by advocating for violence against hunters. The letter has been taken down. We apologize for our error in judgement.

My lab is still the best hunting partner there is.
