I think you've sized up Peyser pretty accurately. She is a psychopath, and quite possibly, a sociopath. And, yes Cans, she IS the only vile creature here.
Thank you to Henry Stewart for an excellent piece! I have found waterfowl and other birds impaled on illegal barbed hooks and entangled in fishing line, and I know of someone who recently found a dead painted turtle, strangled by fishing line. The other day, while walking my dog in the park, a friend and I saw a line sticking out of the water (www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHTlZevRzfs). At the end of it was a poor catfish, struggling to get away. When we examined him, we saw that he had swallowed the (more than likely barbed) hook. If we had attempted to pull it out, we would have yanked out his insides. We just cut the line with the hope that, maybe, he would have a chance to survive. Sadly, he sank to the bottom and was likely not going to make it. I am one who feels fishing should be banned in public parks. There are so many other - better- ways for people to interact with wildlife that don't include torture and killing.
