Officials in Ocean Township, New Jersey reportedly considering bow hunting– one of the most severe forms of killing – to reduce the local population of deer.
Bow hunters usually spend hours tracking the bloody footprints of wounded animals and never find many of their victims, which means the animals die slowly and in agony. Families are torn apart, and the young orphaned are left to starve. There are frequent reports of injured deer roaming the area with arrows sticking out of their bodies or flying wildly along busy roads.
Killing also unpleasant consequencesbecause a spike in food supply causes accelerated reproduction among survivors and inevitably attracts newcomers, causing population to increase… PETA has informed officials of the futility, dangers and brutality of this approach – now it’s your turn.
Please politely ask Ocean Township officials to drop kills for humane control methods– then send this warning to everyone you know.
The Honorable Christopher Siciliano
Temporary village manager
