Two Pennsylvania boys were out hunting and shot a nice buck. The deer was wounded as the boys approached and started to record the wounded deer. They start kicking and stomping the deers head in.
The phrase This is what makes hunting look bad is severely overused. This video definitely makes hunters look bad. In fact, I did not want to even post this story because of how poorly it reflects on hunters, however; this story has already gone viral. When people are undecided about hunting see this video, it will turn them off to hunters everywhere.
I decided to write about this so hunters can put there side of the story out there for anyone that sees this horrible video. This story is going viral and we need to control the conversation. There will not be any hunters that think what these boys did is ok. We all condemn their actions and believe they should get caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. They should lose their hunting privileges for life!
update: The Pennsylvania game commission has announced an investigation.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission is aware of a video purporting to show individuals assaulting an injured deer. The conduct portrayed in the video is reprehensible and potentially a violation of the law.
Pennsylvania State Game Wardens are currently investigating the matter. If you have any information related to the video, we ask that you report it to the Operation Game Thief Hotline at 1-888–PGC-8001 or the Game Commission’s Northwest Region Dispatch Office at 814-432-3187.
Thank you for your help and for your concern for Pennsylvania wildlife.
