A 16-year old Alaskan boy has been traumatized after receiving death threats and condemnation from ignorant activists for killing a whale to help feed his community.
When 16-year-old Chris Apassingok harpooned a 57-foot bowhead whale back in April to help feed his village, he was roundly praised and hailed as a “provider” and, now, a man, for succeeding in this rite of passage. It was a proud and glorious moment for the young Alaskan native.
Then, unfortunately, the animal rights crowd got wind of Apassingok’s achievement and made his life a living hell.
These ignorant activists bombarded Chris on social media with hate mail, condemnations, abuse and even death threats to the point that it deeply affected the young man.
This could be the story of a young man who proudly and honorably provided for his family and community, or a story of noble subsistence traditions being carried on in a modern world where more and more people are disconnected from nature and their food sources.
