Shooting of goats is unjustifiable

I did a brief search on the Internet for Ken Olychick and came up with this website.

I did a brief search on the Internet for Ken Olychick and came up with this website. You may be interested in checking it out, especially his article on the Valhalla controversy:

Obviously he’s a dyed-in-the-wool gun enthusiast who definitely represents the pro-hunter faction in this province.

I am one of the hikers who frequent the Gimli/Mulvey watershed area and although I wouldn’t consider myself to be a “Valhalla extremist” I definitely side with those who are against the shooting of these habituated goats.

In my opinion, anyone who would shoot one of these “tame” goats is an absolute Neanderthal, coward and to be polite — totally unreasonable and unwilling to entertain any other point of view other than his own.
