End Animal Killing Contests in New York
In Defense of Animals

Protest Squirrel Killing by Holley’s Fire Department!

The firefighters’ oath of protecting lives still doesn’t mean anything in Holley, New York. The Holley Fire Department is once again gearing up for another “squirrel shoot ’em up” event on February 22.

The appalling “Squirrel Slam,” a fundraiser for the Holley Fire Department, is moving forward for the eighth consecutive year despite pleas from the public to cancel it. The “Squirrel Slam” wantonly promotes the mass killing of squirrels. Last year prizes were given to the individuals who killed the largest and heaviest squirrels, often pregnant females and those who may well have recently given birth, leaving their young left alone to starve to death. Children as young as 14 years old will be encouraged to gun down as many of these harmless and unsuspecting animals as possible.

Blasting away defenseless squirrels for fun is sickening, and needs to stop now!

 Bay Ridge Civic Association Supports Deer Massacre

In Defense of Animals

Despite offers to manage local deer populations with a non-lethal method, the Bay Ridge Civic Association (BRCA) near Annapolis, MD, went ahead and ordered the killing of their community’s beloved deer.

The BRCA contracts with the despicable USDA Wildlife Services (WS), whose agents have come to Bay Ridge twice so far to shoot at least eighteen deer in what used to be the sanctuary of these sweet animals and many residents alike; a 90-acre wooded area in the neighborhood.

Shocked and angry residents, and their frightened and scared children who asked their parents to do something to help the deer, were devastated. Here we have a community torn apart over the battle for and against saving the deer.

Tell the Bay Ridge Civic Association to Stop Killing Deer

The Bay Ridge Civic Association not only disregards the wishes of its own residents who want to see their community deer alive and protected, and who prefer nonlethal methods if the deer population needs to be reduced, but they even ignored a generous offer by Wildlife Rescue, Inc., of Maryland to assist with deer sterilization. Instead the BRCA went ahead and ordered the deer to be killed.

one morning when we open our eyes,
we will get a most welcome surprise.
everything will turn out fine,
there will be no petitions to sign.
but until that day when
cruelty has vanished.
we will work very hard
to see it forever
banished!!!
