Walk into attorney Randy Thomas' home in Acampo, and your eyes immediately shift to a large brown bear lunging at you with its claws.

Surprisingly, it is unclear who is the more formidable creature in the foyer, Thomas or the bear.

    Yeah, wow, such a glowing report - quite a guy. Hey, I'm not a "greenie" but what I don't get is his obsessive need to hunt animals that are threatened or endangered in the wild, such as Elephants, Rhinos, Hippos, Polar Bears, etc.

    Maybe in Hemingway's time 80 years ago that would have been o.k., but today this sort of big game hunting seems only to serve the machismo instincts of certain people.

    With an ever-growing human population (7 billion and counting) and an ever-shrinking wild animal population (especially big game), can't we find something else to do with our time than hunt endangered and defenseless animals, who don't stand a chance against a Big Game Hunter's high-powered rifle?
