Stop Killing Deer
Another city bites the dust. Yours next? Do something!
Fellow activists:
If you oppose deer-culling as a solution to human-deer conflict problems, especially when non-violent integrated solutions are available, read on.  It could be coming to a city near you, even yours.  Witness the cae below, which came to my attention this morning.  Now, Montana is added to the lengthy list of Ohio, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Connecticut, Colorado and Iowa, among others.
City commissioners pass deer policy
Queen City News, Helena, Montana
Wednesday, June 06, 2007

All but one city commissioner voted Monday night for a management plan designed to reduce the mule deer population in Helena, even if it means killing most of them. The only holdout was Sandy Oitzinger, who made several unsuccessful motions to amend the plan.

If the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission approves the policy developed by an Urban Wildlife Task Force, the city could contract with sharpshooters to dispatch more than 300 of Helena’s estimated 500 urban deer later this year.
Opinions among Helenans are split on what to do about the deer, with some finding them dangerous while others are merely annoyed at what they can do to expensive landscaping and flower and vegetable gardens.

The task force’s proposed policy also suggests that Helena put some money into managing the deer and into educating the public on how to better co-exist with them.

In view of this, I have added Montana to my upcoming 25-states-in-4-months Compassion for Animals Road Expedition #5 (CARE-5, also known as the Deer Tour).  This means that I will have to bypass Colorado in the beginning of the tour, though it could be included at the end of the tour, after Texas.  The itinerary now looks like this:

For those who are not familiar with the deer-culling problem and/or the Deer Tour, please see the Deer section of www.HOPE-CARE.org.  In brief, I will be holding a series of seminars from city to city, titled:
Non-Violent Human-Deer Co-Existence Strategy
This is not just a presentation, but also a rap session and work shop as well.  By the end of the seminar, there will emerge a specific strategy for that city, including, if feasible, the use of the amazing technology called the
Deer Auto-Conveyor (DAC)

There are two types of DACs - the Static DAC and the Dynamic DAC.  Both can relocate deer without the need of capture, tranquilization or transport, i.e. neither would involve harassment of any kind.  By the structure of the DAC, deer relocate themselves under their own steam.
I hope to see you while on Deer tour.
