From ANIMAL PEOPLE, October 1995:

Think Like The Animal: Questions to
Ask Before You Kill, by Norm Phelps.
The Fund for Animals (200 West 57th St., New
York, NY 10019), 1995. 10 pages. Free in limited
quantities.

Back from combat in Vietnam, poet Doug
Rawlings has told high school students ever since,
“If they got you thinking about signing up just to kill
you some time, since nothing else is going down,
you better be getting ready to kill you some women
and children too, and you better be getting ready to
kill you some time doing time, doing some long
time locked up in their screams.” Think Like The
Animal effectively delivers the same message to
young men who might be thinking about proving
their manhood by taking up hunting, from the perspective
of a former hunter from a hunting family
who laid down his gun forever at age 15 circa 40
years ago. It might be best used by young women,
approaching young men they know one-on-one.
