Sign Petition To Stop Deer Killing

February 27th, 2013 by Eric Phelps

Our members asked us to act, so in response to the horrible incident we told you about yesterday regarding the doe shot in the face by police sharpshooters, we’ve started an online petition to ask county officials to stop the inhumane deer cull in Montgomery County Maryland.

Killing deer does not achieve desired results, and paradoxically increases deer numbers due to deer’s adaptive reproductive capability. For example, in January 2011, the city of Solon, Ohio reported that after spending more than a half million dollars from 2005 to 2008 on sharpshooters to reduce the deer population, the number of deer rebounded 54 percent within the following three years.

Please sign the petition asking them to stop immediately and adopt a humane alternative.

    Rather than having fewer deer, we could probably use fewer humans with guns!

    If those idiots would leave the wolves alone…nature would balance out.
