A friend of mine who lives in the countryside recently told me that their neighbours had taken in an orphaned baby deer. Some hunters had shot the mother deer.

You know... some day someone really must explain to me what possesses someone to deliberately snatch the life out of an animal. Think... the hunter comes along and rips the life out of the deer and wrecks a family. How dare he? What entitles him??

Like the Dalai Lama expressed - it's an at once disgusting and distressing act.

And to quote this passage from a few weeks ago:

In man's charge over the animal kingdom, it behooves man to protect and not abuse the animals (Gen. 1: 26-28).
