! At the Appalling
Slaughter of Game
I Mr. Editor:
As a citizen and tax-payer of I
' Stokes county, N. Carolina, and!
lone who believes in conserving!
the game interests of the State,!
I I wish to protest against the
; wholesale slaughter of the squir
-5 rels, one of our most valuable
- game animals. As an instance, I
- refer to the record of one of our
t local hunters, Mr. Tom Petrce,
who after preparations extending
i over 30 days prior to the open
; ing of the season on Sept. 15,
- bought up most of the shells in
t this section and was in the woods
at 2:10 A. M. on the 15th. By 2
- hours after sunrise he had shot
- or maimed 000,000,001 squirrels.
, | Some of our best mathematici
ans here calculated that if this
i Nimrod had killed two more, his
- record would have reached this
i appa'ilng total:
I Killed or rr.air.ied.. 000,000,001
s If he had killed cr
J maimed 2 more it would
have been this ... 000,000,002
-' Total 000,000,003
i Yours for the protection of
• the State's resources.
