HUNTING IN THE VALLEY
I would like to respond to a letter to the editor by a former reader as follows:
Brendan Woodward wrote a response to the earlier article about the shooting of geese near the Woodinville wineries. While I understand that we live in an area that was formerly forest and farmland and that our recent and early ancestors had to live off the land, times have changed. We live in a multi-cultural world and especially in a country and state that embrace and celebrate diversity where different modes of life and values exist. An analogous example would be the recent killing of Cecil the lion. This occurred in a county where hunting and killing of wild animals have been ongoing for generations. Yet the world was outraged and continues to be even though this was perhaps a tradition to some, and certainly to that hunter.
