'They Tell How They Are Going to Kill My Son, Like Cutting His Head Off'

Nothing like those peaceful animal rights wackos. They're portrayed as harmless animal lovers yet they often turn quite violent.

Funny how that works.
When a 1,000-pound wild hog was shot last year in Alabama, 11-year-old hunter Jamison Stone couldn’t have been happier. But his prize photos of the 9-foot-long boar have continued to cause a stink, one the Stone family can’t seem to shake.

The backlash has only grown worse, with one group calling for the hunters' prosecution.

"It is unbelievable what my family has been through over the past year," Mike Stone, Jamison’s father, told The Birmingham News. "It has taken 10 years off my life."

An online petition has garnered more than 800 signatures from around the world demanding prosecution for what activists are calling animal cruelty, according to the newspaper. Rhonda Roland Shearer, a New York City organizer seeking punishment for the hunting team, says it took three hours for the “monster pig” to die after the animal was shot 12 times with a pistol.

"My concern is that this case has brought a negative image to Alabama and to hunters who hunt ethically," Shearer told the News. Shearer has demanded investigations from the county and federal attorney’s offices and two conservation departments, but no charges have been filed.
Why an "organizer" from New York gives a hoot about Alabama is anyone's guess.
But her fight is not over.

There are people all over the world who are outraged," she said.
Nothing like fomenting feigned outrage for your cause. Of course, this nutcase Shearer probably give a shit about the consequences of her action.
The Stone family is feeling their wrath.

"You should see some of the emails and hear some of the calls we have received," Jamison’s father said. "They are explicit. They tell how they are going to kill my son, like cutting his head off.

"It has had us scared to death ... All I did was to take my son on a legal hunting trip."

The prize pig, shot by Jamison Stone on an Alabama hunting preserve in May 2007, was 1,051 pounds and measured 9 feet, 4 inches from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail.
