Oak Mountain Deer Slaughter

Sent to the DeKalb (AL) Times Journal on January 18, 2004

For the first time in the history of Oak Mountain State Park, The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources has approved a bow hunt for January 27th and 28th, even though Conservation Commissioner Barnett Lawley admits that the hunt “will not eliminate the problems associated with deer” at the park. On those days, arrows with broadhead points that are designed to slice through vital organs and cause extensive tissue damage and blood loss, will be shot into tame deer, many of whom will not be recovered by their killers and will run deep into the park only to die slowly of excessive blood loss or massive infection.

We agree with Mr. Lawley and call for the immediate halt to violent and dangerous methods of deer control. For more information on state game agencies’ version of deer “management” contact the Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting at (845) 256-1400 or visit
