OUTRAGE: The animal activist is hereby released!

Tracee Ford

I am not famous. I know that I am not followed by millions of people. I know that the likelihood of anyone even caring about this blog post is remote, but I am writing it anyway. I am outraged and sickened by this latest crime against an endangered species. I am not a hunter. I do not agree with hunting. In fact, I vehemently disagree with it.
