Hey everyone, I just got done reading an article on WRAL.com that has made me absolutely sick to my stomach as a hunter, and a man who RESPECTS the game he takes. This poor man had his 7 fallow deer executed by wildlife officers. Read the story and post your thoughts. I want to make sure I'm not the only one outraged here!
I plan on signing the petition on change.org mentioned in the story. I hope more fellow hunters feel the same way! It's outrageous to take an innocent creature's life without an actual, REAL, reason for doing so. Population management and for food is one thing. But this guy used their antlers for chandeliers etc. Just sick sick sick after reading this!
Hey fellow deer hunters,
So I was doing my daily reading of CNN.com and came across this disturbing story in NY. The town leaders held a secret vote to eradicate any and all deer in Cayuga Heights, NY. Even worse, they plan to do so by the catch and bolt method - attract them with large amounts of food, drop nets on them, and fire a single shot through the head. Sounds like execution to me. Even the NJ Wildlife guys say the catch and bolt method is 'cruel.' I'm just in shock that some people are so ignorant. Their reasoning behind the eradication - they run out in front of cars and they carry ticks... wow. Just thought I'd share this with y'all. Not sure what we can do about it seeing as how we're in NC, but maybe someone on here would know.
