First bees, now fish. It seems that the Duggar family just can’t take a break from those who seem critical of everything they do. Jill was recently thrown because she mistreated a few bees and wasps that had come into her house. Now a few no-sayers are not so happy that some of the Duggar boys went fishing.
The 19 Kids and Counting family is always looking for things to do outside. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar do not let their children sit in front of the TV or a computer screen. They are all about the outdoors and let them be creative with non-electronics. The Duggars recently shared some photos on their Instagram account of their son, Jackson, and his cousin Tyler, Michelle’s biggest cousin, who they adopted in 2016. The boys proudly display the fish they caught that day. According to the post, Tyler and Jackson like to spend the day fishing.
However, some remarks were made that hit the family because they had the boys kill a fish. They were worried about the fish, calling it torture, and saying it is not good to kill one of God’s creatures. Those dedicated Duggar fans clapped back and called the whole thing ridiculous.
This was the same answer to Jill’s recent Instagram photo of the bee and wasp that she killed with a fly swatter. People told her that bees are essential for the environment and that they must let them live. As the Inquisitr had already explained, the mother of the two received comments about how shocking she was to see how people beat her, especially as the stabbing insects entered her home.
Regarding this most recent controversy, Duggar fans have pointed out that the boys may have caught the fish, but then let them go immediately after the photos were taken. Others reminded those who were against the fishing process that the swimming animals were meant to be eaten.
Jackson and Tyler nevertheless had a big smile on their faces as they enjoyed their day of fishing. Other members of the family also enjoyed the warmer weather in Arkansas. The little ones of Jessa and Ben Seewald, Spurgeon and Henry, benefit from their playing time outdoors. Even newlyweds John and Abbie Duggar recently shared that they are more likely to go out for walks.
There is always something going on in the lives of the Duggar family. TLC’s Counting On is expected to be available again later this year.
