What poachers could learn from Teddy Roosevelt

In 1902 President Theodore Roosevelt was on a hunt in Mississippi when he refused to shoot a bear that the guides had clubbed and tied to a tree. He said killing a defenseless animal was unsportsmanlike. This action received national attention and led to the political cartoon “Drawing the Line in Mississippi.” The cartoon inspired Morris Michtom to create a fabric bear called “Teddy’s Bear.” Today this popular stuffed animal is commonly called a Teddy Bear.
