Chief Cioffi did the right thing


To the Editor:

Kudos to Brian Cioffi for saving the young doe (Jan. 6, “Deer hunting season ends on a Bambi note“). The practical solution for rescuing an animal is not to kill it but to make every effort to save its life. as you would a child. It’s no different.

Hopefully, one day in the near future society will look upon animals as an inspiration as to how we should all act. Compassion should start at home. A reverence for all life would almost certainly prevent wars, killing, and the destruction of our planet.
