Turning the other cheek – to animals
I received my first copy of High Country
News a few days ago and it is every bit as good as you
said it would be, only better. I must declare that I was not too
happy with the cover, however (HCN, 6/25/07).
Too bad I did not meet your lion hunter in 'Nam. I could have
turned him into a fine resemblance of human Swiss cheese on full
auto with my M-16. Oh well, we can't win them all. Hope my combat
humor does not offend or upset anyone.
I have camped most
of my life in New Mexico and am happy to report that I have been
attacked by four different animals. All the incidents were my
fault. The animals won, and I lost. Even so, I never hurt any of
the attacking animals. I am very proud of this.
