The Game Commission has mismanaged the wildlife at our state park. They hold annual hunts to manage the deer population which aggravates the problem. The Park now admits the hunt has created more of a problem and their only solution is more killing. We have a grant to explore non-lethal options. Demand they stop killing now and look at long-term effective solutions and not MORE killing. As stewards of the environment, we can learn to co-exist peacefully with our wildlife.
STOP this senseless slaughter. Stop sending a message to our children and college students that attend the College that borders the State Park, that killing is a solution.
This is the wrong message to send our children.
It IS NOT AN EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT RESOURCE. In fact, countless studies have shown that deer hunting actually boosts the reproductive rates in deer populations. Deer who live under non-hunting conditions, for example, typically produce one offspring, while deer who are hunted are far more likely to bear twins and triplets as there is better nutitiion.
We request humane alternatives and non-lethal solutions. Stop the killing and slaughter and bloodshed that permeates our parks. You have an opportunity to leave a legacy of hope and compassion for these sentient beings. You had over 30 years of killing with the same results. Give us the next 30 years to establish non-lethal solutions. There is no scientific evidence to justify these recreational hunts in public state parks. Give citizens back our state parks. Together we can make a difference.
We invite you to review the extensive literature and emerging research on humane wildlife management and now call upon the Game Commission, Bureau of State Parks and Governor of Pennsylvania to use these resources safely, effectively, and humanely.
