Yep, that’s the headline to a news story I listened to the other day. I didn’t bother looking up from the computer, because, I admit it, I know what Britney looks like. Still, it did stick in my mind that, even for the PETA supporting Hollywood elite, a pop star going hunting just isn’t a big enough story to make such a stir with the mainstream press.
Really, beavers are nasty, destructive varmints that need to be kept under control. So, at least the young lady was blazing away at a worthy target. It says something about her aim, as well. Beavers are very wary so it’s difficult to get close, making them a hard target.
I know because I have to get them out of our lake almost every year. Here is what is left of one I gunned down three years ago.
Of course, it originally looked like this.
In summary, I say, “You go Britney! Shoot as many nasty, smelly beavers as you want.” Heck, next time it comes up on the news, I may even look at the picture.
