Abstract

Marie St. George, an animal rehabilitator who wants to halt the loss of wild habitat, bought 104 acres in Denmark next door to Maine Guide and hunter, Phil Richardson, 67. She has left most of her home unfurnished, out of fear that Richardson will drive her out over their dispute over the use of land. Marie had Phil arrested for trespassing on her posted land on his ATV, a rifle straddled across his chest. Phil, a widower and survivor of quadruple heart bypass surgery, believes the tradition of hunting is being lost. Hunters like Phil often have a rich and intimate knowledge of the area they hunt. The two neighbors' divergent views mirror a rift over the issue among many Mainers.
