11-Year-Old Hunter is Bombarded With Death Threats After His Rare Shot is Posted on Facebook

Animal rights activists are known to be pretty loony. If someone does something they don’t like, they’ll retaliate with threats of violence — even if that someone is an 11-year-old boy.

Gavin Dingman, an 11-year-old crossbow hunter from Michigan, recently made the shot of his life on a hunting trip with his father. But what the father and son didn’t realize was that one of Gavin’s proudest moments would soon turn ugly and even dangerous for the preteen.

The young hunter had the trophy of the trip: a 12-point albino buck. Such a rare find was soon made famous when Jordan Browne, a host of the hunting TV show Michigan Out-Of-Doors, posted an image of Gavin with the deer on its Facebook page.

… Though the post has received a lot of support – it currently has 9,585 likes and counting – the hate started to pour in, and it was directed at Gavin and his father, Western Journalism reports.

“There was one comment that someone should shoot that kid with an arrow,” Browne said, “and others along those lines. There were a lot of ignorant people blaming and scolding the parents for letting their child hunt, or as they put it, ‘murder’ things.”

Ah, yes, because more violence is always the key to ending violence, right? To them, this animal’s life is worth more than the little boy’s, which shows how twisted their mindset really is.
