Theosophy acknowledges the important role animals play in our world. Especially in today’s society, our pets are often just as dear to us as any other member of our family or circle of friends.

This deer hunting season in the Midwest has been up close and personal for me. I currently live with a friend who has allowed hunting on the property of 5 wooded acres. I endured the view of a beautiful deer hauled onto the back of a truck and calling it a "harvest".

I do not want to lose a friend, but the practice of hunting for sport on the property where I live is not acceptable to me.
