BACKGROUND | SOURCE HAND4PAWS

The Holley Fire Department is located in the Village of Holley, in eastern Orleans County, NY, it has been brought to the attention of animal advocates, this is their tradition of the “hunting” of squirrels. The website www.holleyfire.com has recently posted on their website an event that calls for people to register in the adult and the youth category of the event. It is a sadistic form of entertainment that is sponsored by the Holley Fire Department. Although it is stated that this event follows all the hunting Rules by the state of the New York, it does not mean that just because it is legal, that it is morally right.

The Holley Fire Department is said to follow federal, state, and local standards, and yet it is unreal that they promote such act of violence in the hands of young people, or that the whole state of New York finds this event as something that represents their culture and beliefs. Just this past December 24, the nation saw the fatal shooting of two firemen in western New York, yet the Holley Fire Department has no respect for those that lost their lives, and continues patronizing this senseless massacre for what they call a “tradition”.

The website states that “by the incorporation of technological advancements in equipment and by advancing the educational level and training of [their] members, the Department will continually strive to improve the standard of fire service”. It is time that the education of the firefighters includes teaching empathy for all living creatures. Non-human and human animals are sentient beings and do not deserve the tragic death of being shot.

We would like to ask the Mayor John W. Kenney, Jr to please stop the Holley Fire Department 7th Annual Hazzard County Squirrel Slam.

The following is the Firefighter oath:

I __________________ do solemnly swear to do my duty as a Firefighter for the City of _______ to the best of my ability; to serve my commanding officers with respect and dignity; to serve the citizens of the City of ________ with compassion, courage and integrity; and to uphold the laws and constitutions of the United States of America, the State of ________, and the City of _______; so help me God.

Please, Village of Holley, live up towards the oath volunteers and members make: compassion, courage and integrity.

SAMPLE COMMENT

Please Stop the Hazzard County Squirrel Slam:

The website http://www.holleyfire.com has recently posted on their website an event that calls for people to register in the adult and the youth category of the event. It is evident by the context of the posting that people raise the squirrels in order to be shot and killed on that day. It is a sadistic form of entertainment that is sponsored by the Holley Fire Department. Although it is stated that this event follows all the hunting Rules by the state of the New York, it does not mean that just because it is legal, that it is morally right.

The Holley Fire Department is said to follow federal, state, and local standards,and yet it is unreal that they promote such act of violence in the hands of young people, or that the whole state of New York finds this event as something that represents their culture and beliefs. Just this past December 24, the nation saw the fatal shooting of two firemen in western New York, yet the Holley Fire Department has no respect for those who lost their lives, and continues patronizing this senseless massacre for what they call a “tradition”.

The website states that “by the incorporation of technological advancements in equipment and by advancing the educational level and training of [their] members, the Department will continually strive to improve the standard of fire service”. It is time that the education of the firefighters includes teaching empathy for all living creatures. Non-human and human animals are sentient beings and do not deserve the tragic death of being shot. We would like to ask the Mayor John W. Kenney, Jr., and the Holley Fire Department, to please stop the Holley Fire Department 7th Annual Hazzard County Squirrel Slam.

The following is the Firefighter oath:

I __________________ do solemnly swear to do my duty as a Firefighter for the City of _______ to the best of my ability; to serve my commanding officers with respect and dignity; to serve the citizens of the City of ________ with compassion, courage and integrity; and to uphold the laws and constitutions of the United States of America, the State of ________, and the City of _______; so help me God.

Please, Village of Holley and Holley Fire Department, live up towards the oath volunteers and members make: compassion, courage and integrity.

Thank you for your attention to this urgent appeal.

Dear compassionate friends,

As you all know the petition was delivered to Mayor and we have records that it was received at 9:36am on Feb 11 2013. The Mayor of the city of Holley received the petition and letter from Hand4Paws and Julie Gallagher. Sadly, the hunt did happen and although concerned citizens from Friends of Animals were there to protest. Fellow Animal Rights Activist Joy Benson has started a new Facebook page that targets all animal killing contests through out the USA. This needs immediate action and it needs the implication of all us in order to have these hunts end once and for all.
