Through the end of January, the Greenwich Sportsmen
and Landowner’s Association will be allowed to hunt on Audubon
Greenwich’s property. To give the appearance of a “good deed,” they
claim that hunters will be donating their kills to the Food Bank
of Lower Fairfield County. [Note that this lack of properly inspected
flesh is going to the poor.]
C.A.S.H. believes that Audubon Greenwich wasted their
members’ dues for the benefit of a small interest group. They spent
$5,000 on a report to give themselves alleged scientific backup
and claimed that non-lethal methods of lowering the deer population
there were expensive and impractical. Do you really want your money
going to this organization?
Is it a surprise that the report concluded that bowhunting
was the best method to control the white-tailed deer population?
The only surprise is that they think they can fool all of the people
all of the time.
According to a newspaper article, the Audubon CT
executive director, said the hunt was not in conflict with the
Audubon mission which is in part to “enjoy nature.” [Go figure.]
As with Mohonk, this large landowner claims that the purpose of
the hunt “is to protect the biological diversity of the sanctuary.” Will
Ron Baker please do an analysis of this?
