Poor picture choice

To the Editor:

I am saddened and appalled by the deplorable deer photos published on pages A1 and A8 of the Nov. 25 Northwest Herald.

I do understand the printing and purpose of the article, “On the Hunt,” which informs readers of deer hunting seasons and of how controlling the deer population helps to limit the spread of disease, crop damage, etc.

I do not feel the two gruesome photos in question are necessary to illustrate the above-mentioned facts of the article in any way.

Mr. Editor, perhaps you should look at these excruciating and undignified photos of God’s creatures and see how it makes you feel.
