Rye deer overpopulation has officials considering bow hunt
15 Apr 2013
On April 15, 2013 News 12 aired coverage of a proposed
bow hunt 'cull' to 'thin' their deer population. Most animal advocates
are against all forms of hunting, as are we; but Bow Hunting is
arguably the cruelest version of hunting - even rifle hunters denounce
it. There are numerous variables making it wildly inaccurate, including
wind conditions, bow maneuvering and strength, all at a moving target.
It is far more likely that an animal shot with a bow will stagger away
injured, wind up with a infection, and die alone suffering pathetically.
Visit Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting (CASH) for
more information on this subject.
Furthermore, Hastings, NY has just introduced a program of birth
control for deer - making Rye's suggestion all the more disgraceful.
Please contact the city of Rye, NY and politely but strongly
denounce their plan, urging them to instead use all humane forms
of learning to live with their deer residents without ever killing them.
There is also an official city meeting at Rye City Hall Wednesday
night, at 1051 Boston Post Road. A 'Public Comments' section is
included in the agenda.
