It never occurred to me that hunting would even be allowed on this tiny island until I saw the No Hunting signs going up all over the place. My next door neighbour put one on every corner of his property. I asked around and sure enough it's true though not one single person I spoke to thinks it's a good idea. I mean, what sport can there be in killing animals that are so accustomed to humans that I was able to take this photograph in my front yard? Not to mention safety issues. The only good news is that the season is almost over and I've not seen one single carcass being hauled away by vehicle nor have I heard much gunfire so maybe the slaughter has been minimal. I sure hope so.
