Arcade Hunting: No Tribute To The Great Outdoors

National Public Radio’s Scott Simon on US Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke’s installation of the arcade game “Big Buck Hunter Pro” in his department’s cafeteria:

I’m not as upset to see zombies, space invaders and super villains burst into flame when they’re zapped on screens, and maybe that’s all the animated deer are to anyone who fires away at them on Big Buck Hunter. But it’s Secretary Zinke who suggests this arcade game is some kind of tribute to hunters and conservation. You can also show respect for wildlife and wilderness by going into the woods and walking, looking and listening.
