"I took this photo at the opening day of the duck hunts in Victoria, Australia. People from across the province came out in droves to protest as well as bear witness. There were lots of children. Their expressions say it all. We all felt it. It was horrible.

Some people think it's vital to sensitize and expose kids to what we do to animals when they're young. I know that others protect their children from it, and want them to find out on their own, or are worried about young people carrying an emotional load they feel they shouldn't carry until they are a bit older. I'm sure it's a fine line, and that young people can see and cope differently, depending on their personalities, the parenting, and the empathetic discussions around what's going on." - Jo
