PETA Reprimands Teen Hunter After She’s Attacked by a Bear

A Pennsylvania teen was attacked by a bear while hunting, causing injuries so severe that she almost lost her ear. Following the attack, PETA wrote her a letter, saying, “This seems to be a good opportunity to put yourself in the place of the individuals you and the rest of your hunting party were trying to kill. As terrifying as it must have been to be attacked by a bear, please consider the frightening and painful experiences that hunters set out to impose upon animals.”

Lisa Lange, Senior Vice President of PETA, stood by the letter on Tuesday’s The Real Story. “If there was ever a time when this girl might actually sympathize with the animals that she and her family go out and kill, we think that it’s now when she’s actually suffered a terrorizing attack of her own,” Lange said.

Gretchen Carlson replied, “When a teenage girl is potentially almost killed … you send a letter asking her to look at it from the perspective of the bear?!”

Lange didn’t back down, saying, “Absolutely.”

Jimmy Sites, of Spiritual Outdoor Adventures, countered that the “timing of the letter was extremely harsh.”

“The timing was absolutely inappropriate. It should have been done in a different timing or at least in a different fashion. It’s much better to have someone from PETA go and meet with the girl face to face than to hide behind words on a letter,” Sites said.
