End Trap and Bolt of Deer in Lyndhurst, Ohio

This petition had 1,354 supporters

We urge the residents of Lyndhurst, Ohio to sign this petition in a joint effort to force an immediate stop to the trap and bolt method of exterminating deer.

For the second year in a row, the mayor and city council have reinstated trap and bolt. This method of culling involves trapping a deer in a metal cage.  In a state of panic and terror, deer often scream and thrash trying to escape, which often leads to broken limbs and other injuries.  As many as 12 hours may pass before the vendor finally arrives to shoot a 4 inch metal bolt into the deer's brain. The difficulty in restraining the deer in order to pierce the intended target may result in additional firings. Meanwhile the suffering ensues until the struggling deer's life is finally ended.    

 Trap and bolt is an UNUSUALLY brutal form of culling and is RARELY used.  Until the trap and bolt system of executing deer is permanently halted, we will continue to expose the city of Lyndhurst regionally and nationally for its sponsorship of cruelty to animals. Tell Mayor Ward and city council to rescind their decision and demonstrate accountability and respect for all the constituents they have been elected to serve.
