Kathy Witbeck Cagle posts on 1/13/2010 7:29:07 PM Regarding 'The Taxidermists Son' I just thought you might want to get information CORRECT before posting it in one of your books. My brother, Tom Witbeck, was killed by a deer the Minnesota Department of Wildlife had dropped off for transfer. His pet deer was defending him, and both deer were destroyed due to injuries from the fight. Tom died in September, not October, and he was never careless about the animals he kept. Your writings in your book make it sound like Tom was careless and foolish, when you didn't even know the man. Everything you wrote was on hearsay from others who thought they knew, and it is obvious that you didn't bother to check out the facts. Sadly, this is how people, and their work, are destroyed everyday. I pray you will be more cautious in your future references used in books you put out to publish.
