Boy Gets Bear Wish Then Dies

http://www.11alive.com/news/article_...?storyid=98349


Quote:
He wanted one last adventure; he wanted to go bear hunting. Two weeks ago, Safari Club International made that last wish possible. In the thick Canadian woods, Kerr killed his bear.
On their way home June 7, just 40 minutes outside of Atlanta, Kerr died.

This is one amazing story of a little boy's adventure.

Bless his heart. I hope we will all extend prayers for this family. I think it's horrible for any family to lose a child, but at least this family knows their baby died very happy and content with his memories.

I passed an accident this afternoon on North Market. It had just happened and it looked to me like a pedestrian had been hit by a car. I found out this evening that it was a 9 y/o child hit and the child has passed away. Please keep this family in your prayers as well.

Maybe the idea of bear hunting was the only thing that was keeping him going. Those bastards took his dream away from him by making it a reality.

There you go again, but there is some truth there. But now he died happy, dreams fulfilled.

So am I the only person who finds it a little disgusting that the last dying wish of this boy was to murder something else?

I think it is more of a adrenalin rush. I am sure it made the boy happy to reach a goal he had set for himself. It sounds like he did die happy and that is a very good thing.

So is shooting cans, bottles, and targets, except they don't suffer pain and/or death as a result of being shot.

Now it would be a different story if the kid was going to eat the meat or make a coat out of the fur, or the animal was impressive enough to warrant having it stuffed and mounted....but I seriously doubt that was ever the intention and the more likely scenario is that the entire carcass was discarded and I simply cannot condone the needless destruction of life for no greater purpose than entertainment.

I don't condone such waste either, but the article doesn't say what they did with the carcass. I doubt they just shot it and left it. Safari Club International arranged the trip. They no doubt arranged proper disposal of the bear if the family didn't want it.

I don't particularly care for the killing of innocent animals either BUT I would make an acception for MY dying baby. I'd kill the bear myself if my child could die happy!

Vey good Pokie, My feelings exactly. As long as he died happy that is all that matters.

Good point, except which do you think would be MORE beneficial to the environment. Proper disposal, or leaving the bear where it died, as would have happened if the bear had died of natural causes, and letting nature take it's course?

You see, that's why I don't have a problem with hunting for resources....that's what we would be doing "in the wild" anyway.

They do not hunt trophy's just to let it rot in the woods I am sure the parents of that child had that animal processed and taxidermy-ed and will cherish it for a very long time. The population is monitored and tags are issued for a certain about of bears. The tags are for adult male bears and the hunter only gets a tag in draw the state does each year so not every one gets a tag. Game management

Very well said. If it was my child I know I would have the bear stuffed so I would have a memory of my son and his last wish.

I don't think some people (those without children) understand how precious a child is. I have seen families with these sick children with cancer and there is not a doubt in my mind that they would do WHATEVER that child wants so it is happy. The rest of us would as well too.
