In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

"On the Lighter Side" : Bear Killing

Yes, appearing in the "Lighter Side" section of the paper is this item about Jonathan Kimble, a mascot with a musket. So, in keeping with peace and goodwill to others and all that, he kills himself a bear. That was in a tree. Sporting, that. Then he uploads the killing to YouTube.

Sick bastard of course, but editors thinking this is material for all those "lighter side" moments have a twisted sense of things as well.

ON THE LIGHTER SIDE: Now WVU has ordered Kimble to stop using his university-issued weapon on hunting trips after a video of this week’s kill was posted online. He says hunting with the gun is a Mountaineer mascot tradition.

The 24-year-old Franklin resident accompanied more than a dozen friends and family on the trip in Pendleton County on Monday. In the video, Kimble is shown firing the musket at the bear in a tree.
