After Utah hunter Bradly Greenwood slipped and was gored by an elk he had just shot, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) is saying “Payback is hell” through the use of a graphic billboard ad.
On September 7, Greenwood was attempting to move his elk when he slipped, falling on the antlers of the elk. An antler impaled his face and neck, causing Greenwood to struggle to breath, according to mydailynews.com.
Greenwood is recovering in a Utah hospital; however, PETA feels this is the appropriate time to display an image of a large elk with blood dripping from the antlers. The graphic image is partnered with the text: “Payback is Hell. Leave animals alone”.
PETA plans to place the ad in Vernal, Utah – the town that was located 30 miles from where Greenwood was injured.
According to PETA “hunting isn’t necessary for human survival, and so-called ‘wildlife management’ is a myth”. In reality, scientific experts know better. Wildlife conservation and hunting both have proven to be a vital and necessary part of wildlife management.
