“Be vewy vewy quiet; I’m hunting wabbits”

March 7, 2007

Is Elmer Fudd off hunting wolves in Belarus, or do they just not have much of a firearm safety education program over there?

Our photo caption says this guy is using his gun as a horn to gather hunters. What? So, there’s like a horn shortage in Belarus? Horns are so hard to come by that guys are forced to stick a gun barrel in their mouth to communicate?

Based on what I see here, I’m thinking the wolves have a reasonable chance of survival. If you personally have any wolves to protect, ship ’em off to Minsk. In fact, ship ’em personally to the hunter in the photo.
