Environmentalists demand Florida Marlins stop player from hunting

Palm Beach Post had this story on Sunday:

Could be a long season for the Florida Marlins, and not just because of the expected losses.

The environmental group that saw 27 of its members arrested last month in a protest against FPL is telling the Marlins they need to rein in pitcher Logan Kensing, or else.

What did the reliever do?

The off-season rancher finds it rewarding to track wild hogs and coyotes with a helicopter hovering over his native Texas, then gun them down from above.

"We want the Marlins to make him agree to stop," said the Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition's co-chair, attorney Barry Silver. . . . .

This fellow makes Dick Cheney look like a sportsman. Such a fellow gives all hunters a bad name. Arm the coyotes, let them shoot back!

I like this part of the article best. This is just commentary (liberal biased commentary) by the reporter:

"In the era of NFL star Michael Vick and his dogfighting ring, as well as low-level PGA golfer Tripp Isenhour's killing of a hawk on an Orlando golf course in December, Kensing's interview didn't fly with many."

Notice how Kensing's hunting, which is perfectly legal, is thrown in with the criminal acts of Michael Vick and Tripp Isenhour.

It may be legal, but it certainly isn't sporting. What's the point? Besides, coyotes are cute little critters, leave 'em alone. Disgusting.

From a helicopter. Man, big hunter.
