Nun Shoots Deer, Gets Major Backlash from Animal Rights' Groups

On November 30, Sister John Paul Bauer shot and killed a 10-point buck. She then took a picture of her kill, which was posted on the Erie Diocese's Facebook page.

The image showed her in her nun's habit, at the back of a pickup holding her deer by the antlers. Before hunting, she had prayed the rosary and waited at her tree stand for three hours.

The page then received close to 1.5 million views when animal rights activists started getting offended.

Anne-Marie Welsh, spokeswoman for the Erie Diocese, in northwestern Pennsylvania said, "We recognize that social media needs to be a two-way conversation, but unfortunately, many of those who oppose hunting posted vulgar comments, using profanity and even an obscene photograph. After careful consideration, we decided to delete the post due to its inflammatory nature."

Bauer said, "After I realized I got the deer, I thanked God." Bauer learned to shoot while in the Navy. She added, "In St. Marys, this is what you do. You go hunting."
