Deer Slaughter in British Columbia

The BC government has authorized various communities to slaughter deer.

Write to the communities of Kimberley, Invermere, Crankrook, Penticton, Grand Forks and Victoria. Tell them to choose humane methods for controlling the deer ‘overpopulation’, which is mostly a result of human interference in the first place.

SAMPLE LETTERS

Sample One

To Whom It Concerns,

Why would you even think about slaughtering deer in your city? Violence only begets violence – at the end of it all, what kind of a message does that send to the children in your community? Should conflicts with wildlife automatically be solved with firearms? There are many humane, non-lethal methods to address human-deer conflicts. Please visit the following webpage: http://www.netandboltcruelty.net/humane.htm

Unless you indicate that deer slaughtering is off your agenda, my family and I will not consider spending our tourist dollars in your city, and we will inform all of our contacts of this unethical behaviour. Do the right thing! Be kind! A timely response to my concerns would be appreciated.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent issue.


Sample Two

To Whom It Concerns,

It is remarkable how some politicians choose expediency over rational behaviour. There are many tried and tested humane alternatives to killing deer: http://www.netandboltcruelty.net/humane.htm

Fortunately, not all politicians cater to violence. Hopefully, yours will not be remembered as those who didn’t bother to try the alternatives, because they just wanted to use tax dollars to promote cruelty. Please don’t kill the deer and instead implement non-lethal alternatives.

Unless you indicate that deer slaughtering is off your agenda, my family and I will not consider spending our tourist dollars in your city, and we will inform all of our contacts of this unethical behaviour.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent issue.


Sample Three

To Whom It Concerns,

Please oppose the killing of deer in your township. There are plenty of tried and tested humane alternatives. Because you support violence, I will not spend my tourist dollars there and will also tell my friends not to spend their money in your city.

Please implement the non-lethal methods:  there are many tried and tested humane alternatives to killing deer: http://www.netandboltcruelty.net/humane.htm

Thank you for your attention to this urgent issue.


this is the 21st century
the puter age,
and it is very clear.
there is no time nor place
for slaughtering deer.
teaching killing animals
next graduating to man,
taking moral values
and throwing them into
the garbage can.
we will not visit any
deer killing cities,
soon.
we will not give our $$$s
to murdering loons!!!!!
