For those who have been dreaming for the day hunters start killing each other, the day has come as we came across this news story of a hunter killing himself after shooting a fellow hunter. Two hunters in from the state of Vermont were found dead with gun wounds with what seems like a hunting accident followed by a suicide.
Benjamin Birch, 39, Timothy Bolognani, 49, and Mark Colford were hunting deers near Readsboro, Vermont, on Saturday afternoon when Bolognani fired at what he throught was a deer that turned out to be his friend Birch. Bolognani and Colford ran to Birch to discover that he was bleeding and passed away shortly. Overwhelmed with grief, Bolognani pointed the rifle at himself and committed suicide. The remaining Hunter who lost two friends called the police shortly after.

The man that was accidentally killed, Birch, was an avid hunter who often uploaded photos of his various kills including black bears to Facebook and have made pro-hunting comments such as complaining about how short deer hunting season is in Vermont.
When people go about with guns, accidents happen. It is better that society rids itself of trophy hunting and guns to ensure no unnecessary lives (human or animals) are taken. That’s why animal lovers are calling for the upcoming largest animal rally, CECIL2016. This rally plans to raise awareness and help involve people to be effective in putting an end to trophy hunting.
