There’s a reason wolverines are held up as an example of badass little beasts.
We see everything from athletic teams, the kids in Red Dawn, and a particularly nasty superhero named after them. It’s because these little guys can punch well above their weight.
About half the size of a wolf, they have still been known to hunt larger prey, like deer.
Which brings us to today’s video clip.
Imagine you’re biking down a trail in the woods, and you hear an animal approaching. You pull out your phone and start filming… and you see this guy walking down the trail towards you.
Wolverines have been known to chase BEARS away from their kills, it isn’t big, but it’s fierce.
And when it gets closer, you see it’s carrying an animal’s head in its mouth. (Was that a domesticated goat? How did it manage to scare up one of those?)
It comes right past you.
Would you just stand there as it went by? Or would you have been headed back the other direction like a bat out of hell?
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
In his killer new book RISE, KILL & EAT: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation Doug carries on with his courageous war against the lunatic fringe who dare recommend Bambi solutions to the annual production of edible wildlife. –Ted Nugent
