In an age where Michael Vick is in jail for dogfighting, and golfer Tripp Isenhour's killing of a hawk with a golf ball may put him there as well, we naturally have other guys roaming free and killing animals at will - from a helicopter, with high-powered rifles. Makes sense, by which I mean, not really.
Yep, Florida Marlins reliever Logan Kensing is an off-season rancher who finds it rewarding to track wild hogs, coyotes,
That kind of reminds me of something.
As you can guess, a few people are none to happy about this little endeavor of Kensing's. The Palm Beach County Environmental Coalition, which conveniently saw 27 of its own members arrested in a protest last month, sent a strongly worded letter to Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria.
Anyway, I hope Kensing keeps it up, just to add some spice to the Marlins' season. It would be fun to see an environmental group go commando to heckle an MLB pitcher.
By the way, in my opinion, hunting hogs from a helicopter is kind of unfair. I much prefer hunting them inside a large, low-fence enclosure like this kid did.
