Shawnee Mission Park, located in the suburbs of Kansas City, wants to continue to slaughter the Deer in the Park, even after being given proven non-lethal, non-invasive plans to care for the Deer under their jurisdiction.
Watch this video of a deer dying in agony as the result of a bow shot. THIS is what Shawnee Mission Park in Kansas has already done to their deer, and wants to CONTINUE on an annual basis.
After receiving thousands of phone calls and emails from concerned citizens and tax payers of Johnson County and ethical persons from all over the world, after receiving a 5 page letter from the Humane Society of the United States recomending non-lethal methods to care for the deer, after being presented with a proven plan for reducing the deer herd by humane methods, Shawnee Mission Park proceeded with their plan to slaughter the deer. 313 deer were murdered in 3 days by Dr. Anthony DeNicola. Then after numerous protests the Bow Hunt commenced annihilating 29 more deer. The park wants to save the remaining deer (6 to 10 deer are all that have been spotted) to reproduce so they can have an Annual Bow Hunt and cause more agonizing deaths to the deer.
The Governor of Kansas, the Board of County Commissioners of Johnson County, Shawnee Mission Park Directors, and the Kansas Wildlife Department have systematically and continually "Passed the Buck" each entity refusing to take responsibility for the slaughter; they have lied to the Public, they have stolen and fraudently used tax dollars for a slaughter that the majority of the citizens did not want, they lied about the cost of the Birth Control medicine which is available for the Deer, they lied to the Judge in District Court about having NO plans for LETHAL Deer Herd Management in the Future, and are now planning to have a "Bow Hunt" on an annual basis in a Family Park. They are LIARS, THIEVES, DECEIVERS, AND MURDERS OF INNOCENT BEINGS who only want to live full lives in peace.
Kansas Dept of Wildlife Big Game Coordinator Lloyd Fox, refuses to issue a Permit for Shawnee Mission Park to use IC(Deer Birth Control) because he says it needs to be "researched" THIS is a BLATANT LIE. It has been researched for 20 years and IT WORKS. Please watch these two videos for PROOF that IC(Deer Birth Control) works. The only reason Lloyd Fox doesnt want to issue the Permit for IC(Deer Birth Control) is because he is a hunter and he likes to kill animals. Besides the State can make money from hunters.
Michael Meadors, Park Director in Shawnee Mission Kansas told a JUDGE in DISTRICT COURT on 12/14/2009:
"Once that number is reduced, to answer your question, sir, the Board did ask that the staff evaluate thoroughly the use of non-lethal immunocontraceptives, chemical sterilization, others that could be evaluated and implemented. We will conduct a flyover census. The earlier measures were spotlight surveys. A flyover census and snow cover, no vegetation is a very accurate method to count the deer. And then we will provide a report to the Board following that census with recommendations of how the first two harvests were conducted, their success rate, and the hope of possible research and/or implementation of the non-lethal method that I mentioned."
THEN ON 02/10/2010
with no flyover census, no report to the board, no public input or commentary, no discussion, no vote by the board, and the victims from the most recent slaughter still warm, JCPRD is already announcing the necessity of the next round of killing. It doesn't get much more disingenuous, corrupt or undemocratic than that....
THEN ON 02/10/2010, Dr. Lloyd Fox, Kansas Dept. of Wildlife Big Game Coordinator said:
“I’m not aware of any request or any permit that the department has issued to sterilize deer to attempt to control populations of free-ranging deer,” he said, adding the department doesn’t even have a policy on deer sterilization.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO STOP THE LYING OF CORRUPT GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS, THE DEFRAUDING OF THE CITIZENS, THE DECEPTION OF THE CITIZENS, AND MOST OF ALL THE BETRAYAL OF INNOCENT CREATURES OF GOD, WHO ARE UNDER THE CARE OF SHAWNEE MISSION PARK DEPARTMENT IN JOHNSON COUNTY, KANSAS.
The following people are responsible for this cruel and inhumane method of managing the deer herd who should be cared for with love and compassion, not brutality and violence.
