URGENT: Deer Dying on Kansas City Cemetery Fence, please send letter and/or call

BACKGROUND | SOURCE PETA

Missouri residents report that deer are being impaled on a wrought-iron fence at Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery in Kansas City. Others apparently get their feet caught in the fence’s bars and thrash until they hurt themselves and die of their injuries. We’re told that authorities recently ended the suffering of one deer who was found impaled, alive and struggling, upon this fence. Alarmingly, the cemetery reportedly intends to install more wrought-iron fencing! PETA has asked cemetery officials to take corrective measures, but our calls and letters have gone unreturned.

Please urge Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery officials to retrofit this fence so that these tragedies come to an end. Simple and inexpensive remedies include removing or capping the iron spikes and adding a flat top in order to prevent deer from being impaled!

SAMPLE LETTER

Dear Superintendent Hunter and Location Manager Kinsinger,

I am disturbed to learn that deer are currently being impaled on the fence at the Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetery in Kansas City. Deer jump the fence and are either impaled or are trapped, and death does not occur for long periods of time. As such, I am respectfully requesting that the Floral Hills Funeral Home and Cemetary correct this situation via simple and inexpensive remedies that include removing or capping the iron spikes and adding a flat top in order to prevent deer from being impaled.

Animals are sentient beings and have the capacity to love, experience violence against them, and die painfully. It is immoral to ignore their suffering, especially when positive alternatives are readily available. It is my understanding that you plan on extending the fence; this would pose a great opportunity to have a safe one constructed. Additionally, the sight of dead and dying deer in obvious states of agony does not provide for the peaceful resting place that people expect from a reputable funeral home and cemetery.

Please stop the torment that your fence causes and take precautions, such as those listed above, to save, rather than harm, the deer.

Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent message.
