Cloaked in “elegant” prose, “Killing the Goat” was an absolutely revolting article (HCN, 10/28/19). Hunters can search for kinship with the wild all they want, but it is total BS. This clown wounds the mountain goat, tries to follow it but cannot, then kills a bear who comes towards her as she heads back to camp. Kinship would be better achieved if she hunted with a camera. I am so tired of all the delusional excuses hunters make as they wound and slaughter wildlife, but this one really takes the prize.
