Anti-Hunters SAVAGE 10-Year-Old Boy Online For Shooting A Pheasant

Written by Doug Giles on January 6, 2016

My hunting buddy from across the pond, Rachel Carrie, just posted on Facebook the brutal BS her 10-year-old son went through by anti-hunters because he shot a pheasant. That’s one pheasant. Below is her original post.

My TEN-year-old son was called a “horrible little bastard” “asshole” and a “cunt” (I apologise for these foul words) yesterday, not by other children, by adults! The reason? Because he accompanied me on a game shooting day and shot his first pheasant, a pheasant which he will eat tonight for his dinner. Each person making these remarks themselves are meat eaters, the only difference between their Sunday roast and my sons is that we spent a day outdoors to get ours, yet in the completely ignorant minds of these people that, and only that difference gives them the right to viciously attack my son & I. Not one of them can afford me an explanation as to why. not one.

“Racism is when someone is treated differently or unfairly just because of their race or culture. People can also experience prejudice because of their religion or nationality. It is illegal to treat people differently or unfairly because of their race and nobody has the right to make you feel bad or abuse you.”

“Terrorism is the use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature; this is done through intimidation or coercion or instilling fear.”

Yes, I did just cast comparison between the definition of racism and terrorism with the behaviour of those who oppose hunting. I think it’s time those who threaten, verbally and/or physically abuse those partaking in a perfectly legal and ethical activity realise what they are doing is no better and were dealt with the same as anyone practising racism or terrorism. To me, it’s always been the block and delete button, to the 15year old who was physically harmed by an anti last week, the hunt master beaten unconscious with iron bars by masked hunt protesters in January it wasn’t so easy, i feel the time has come that “rising above” and delete and block has been exhausted.

These people have somehow been allowed to believe they have the right to behave this way and it needs to stop, there has to be consequences. We are fighting enough hatred, terror and violence on a global scale, against people using terror and violence to force their ideals on others, we don’t need to behave this way to one another. I respect that we may have a difference in opinion, I never feel I have to put mine across using foul language, threats and bullying. I have always given antis the opportunity and platform to explain the reasons I deserve the abuse in an informative and factual manner out of the hundreds not one has ever stepped forward – what does that tell you? I won’t be affording anyone that privilege anymore as now it involves my son I will instead start and report it to the police and I urge everyone to do the same, perhaps then the scale of this problem will be recognised and more will be done.
