EMERGENCY PROTEST RALLY SUNDAY

PLEASE JOIN US for an EMERGENCY
PROTEST RALLY to
SAVE the DEER who live in
ROCK CREEK NATIONAL PARK
this SUNDAY, JAN. 12 at 12 noon through the evening hours.

We will gather at the “Rock Creek Park” sign located in a triangle of grass at the corner of Military Road, NW, where it intersects with Oregon Ave. and Glover Rd., NW.This is the same location where the series of protests were held last March.

(Plans for a protest motorcade are currently being explored but this form of protest cannot be undertaken quickly in the District of Columbia. Legal review is necessary and permits may have to be obtained.)

In the meantime, WE MUST ACT NOW to PROTEST WHILE THE KILLING IS GOING ON!

Please pass the word!

This year, the National Park Service began shooting the deer who live in the Park on Jan. 6 and have continued to shoot on subsequent nights since. So far, at least 21 deer have been killed in at least two nights of shooting in bitter cold temperatures.

The Park Service’s announced goal is to kill 106 deer — almost half of the deer still remaining in the Park — between now and March 31.

Initially, there were approximately 314 deer living in Rock Creek National Park; the population had been stable for years. In March 2013, the NPS gunned down 20 heavily pregnant does. It was the first time in the 124-year history of Rock Creek Park that the Park Service began destroying the animals it is charged with protecting.

A total of 41 animals have so far been destroyed under the Park Service’s new policy.

Since Jan. 6, the NPS has set up unannounced road blocks at some roads leading into the Park and manning them with Park Rangers and U.S. Park Police. Hired guns from the USDA’s notorious Wildlife Services Department have been baiting the deer with food and then shooting them at night using infrared equipment.

The killings that we are aware of so far have centered on an area between Oregon Ave., and 16th St., NW, in the vicinity of Beach Drive north of Broad Branch Rd., Ross Drive, Wise Rd.,

    This is Simply Not Right. It is as if the National Park Service and the USDA’s Wildlife Services Division have free rein to do whatever they choose. They don’t seen to have to answer to anyone, do they? All of this makes me sick.

      I agree, they can killkillkill with no impunity. They are just hunters in suits.
