Along the Potomac, an accident waiting to happen
By Paula Dubberly
The fatal shooting of Jessica Goode by a hunter while she was on public land underscores that hunting accidents can and do happen. That’s why it is frightening to find a duck blind along the Potomac River about 10 feet from Riverside Park off the George Washington Parkway, and why it is astounding Fairfax County cannot outlaw duck hunting in popular kayak and fishing areas in and along the Potomac such as Dyke Marsh.
If the horrific death of Ms. Goode can happen in rural hunting country, how long before an accidental hunting death occurs here in suburbia?
