This post from the Fail Blog seemed like the beginnings of an urban legend, but turns out to have a verifiable source.

With a little Googling, this turned out to be a “Speak Out” item in the Daily Journal in in Kankakee, Ill. The newspaper’s links are a little wonky so, to find the original clueless post, go to the newspaper’s home page and enter “to all you hunters” in the search box.

You’ll find a reply that is interesting in its own right.

    Well, no animals WERE harmed in the store…they were already dead by then.

    ok, that’s a stretch, the guy just has to be an idiot.

    Me thinks this is just someone trolling.

    #2 – Best post around here in months. And no, it wasn’t me.

    I can only hope this was a kid and not an adult.

    I’m thinking that this person might be being a little sarcastic? Possibly?

    I’ll bet the post was written by Sheryl Crow while standing in the health food store next to the tofu bacon.

  10. stopher2475 says:

    Thanks #6. Couldn’t possibly have a post with out a “damm liberals” comment. Yes, Obama wants your guns and red meat. Pathetic.

    Maybe this person knows something we don’t.

    I still think we need to have national protests condemning the inhuman practice of mauling and torturing alive cute fuzzy animals by wild carnivores. This always seems to be under-reported by the liberal press.

    Even if it turns out we can’t completely stop this disgrace, I think we can still send out a strong message about where we stand on such animal sufferings.

    If we can put a man on the moon, surely we can now feed all these savage, yet noble predators with meat substitutes, or at least institute positive-feedback training, or maybe even gene-therapy programs.

    Animals don’t much care technically what is causing their misery or death. So I hope I can speak for PETA and animal-lovers everywhere when I write that we can’t just talk-the-talk: Zero tolerance to all animal agony and torment everywhere!

    last comment… “I think the best thing for you is to give up eating meat. Then the second thing you cauld do, is find out how life works. ”

    I suspect we’re waaaaay past the point of finding out how life works.

    Saw this on the tonight show a couple weeks ago, during “Headlines..”

  16. Cephus says:

    Oh, I’m sure these people are serious, there are people out there who are really that stupid, who have never stopped to think about what they believe, or maybe they stopped to think once and forgot to start again.

    In any case, while this is a ridiculous case, it’s hardly a surprising one.

    I believe an animal rights outfit in the UK has already called for all cat owners to keep their kitties indoors at all times. They put out some unverifiable number of poor birdies killed each year by domesticated cats.

  18. Mark Derail says:

    Ridiculous, I never met a deer hunter that made an animal suffer unnecessarily.

    The opposite, PETA has many videos on their website showing just how cruel animal workers are bringing them to slaughter.

  19. RMVX says:

    #19 – Seconded. Most of the hunters I know actually respect wildlife (or try to)… the douchebags are usually the ones who want to make a career out of killing things

  20. StoopidFlanders says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised for a moment if this was a troll from a meat-eater attempting to make vegetarians look stupid. On the other hand, I’m fully aware of the number of eco-greenies that would actually believe that statement. Either way, there’s some mighty stupidity going on here.

  21. Ubiquitous Talking Head says:

    It is OBVIOUSLY OBVIOUSLY OBVIOUSLY meant facetiously and/or sarcastically.


  22. pokey says:

    I hate people who “call in” to newspaper columns even more than I hate radio “viewers.”

  23. Orangetiki says:

    this is why I don’t travel out of the northeast anymore.
