Dumb and dumber

Dear Editor:

I just read the article, “Couple fined for poaching trophy deer” (Jan. 7, The Aspen Times).

Hey, Honey, let’s go out and poach a trophy deer then put it on the internet! Six million sperm, and they were the fastest? Incredible. Incredible waste of a great

animal. I have hunted from Alaska to Africa. Gone for everything from elephant,brown bear, man and the elusive aspen house mouse. All were legal. These two idiots are not hunters. They are poachers. A hunter has a code of morals and ethics.

Also, the article says that they have got into trouble with the law concerning animals before. Why not just cut off their trigger fingers? After a few more arrests, they ain’t going bowling no more.
