Tamaskan shot in BC

I haven't been here for a few years, I was just reading the Tamaskan Wikipedia page when I found out this happened a few months back. I went to check on the forum, expecting a very lengthy thread, but found nothing. I also found this video about the event. Warning, in the text (no speaking) segment ...

What's so bad about letting kids (and adults) see what chopping up an animal looks like? Everyone of us knew about that a couple of generations ago, it was everyday life. I doubt they will be traumatized, and like I said, they were free to leave. No one forced them to look.
