Re: “The One-Pot wonder that is Raccoon Stew

The picture is horrible and tasteless. Using that as the cover in conjunction with SEWE is disgraceful. I believe the City Paper owes not only SEWE an apology but the entire Low Country. Once again the people of the “poor old south” are being depicted as backwoods, coon eating rednecks. Seriously, would you post a picture of a lamb, calf, chick or other baby animal offered up as dinner. That is obviously not an adult raccoon. And yes some people do eat raccoons and opossum out of necessity. While I don’t completely agree with hunting, hunting to put food on the table is one thing, hunting for sport is quite another thing. People such as Moise who hunt for show is a whole different level of low. And his boyhood story of being a hungry college student was so touching. I wonder how many hunting laws he broke during that time and if that was his reasoning for becoming a “game warden”. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, retired business owner, I have raised two rescue labradors, currently have two rescue grand puppies, I recycle, I’m not a tree hugger but I care about our environment, I have volunteered at our local schools, I have been the treasurer for a non-profit club for over 20 years. I am a responsible, reasonable adult. I am also a wildlife rehabber and I currently have a non-releasable 9 month old female opossum who is blind. Last spring I had 29 baby opossums in my kitchen which I was tube feeding and can happily report they were all returned to the wild as nature intended. I was very offended by the picture and by the oh so touching story told by Moise. This picture and article has shamed Charleston. We are so much better than this!
