Anti’s Attack School Hunting Program

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has chosen a Wisconsin middle school as one of the newest targets in its anti-hunting fight.

Students at Northwestern Middle School in Poplar, Wisconsin have a Hunter’s Wall, which is a spot where they can post photos of their kills, celebrating the rich hunting heritage of the region.

The photo wall is in the classroom of science teacher Russ Bailey, who also teaches an after-school hunter education course in the room.

PETA sent a letter to the principal of the school, Ken Bartelt, asking him to remove the Hunter’s Wall because the organization believes it promotes violence. The letter was also posted online and was sent to local media.

Bartelt said he feels the wall is positive for the students and the community. The Hunter’s Wall for this year features 52 photos of animals taken by the students throughout the year.

School officials say they have received letters from people supporting the wall and its message about the region’s hunting culture. The school has not received letters against the wall, except for the one from PETA.
