Urge the City of Grand Forks to Halt Plan For Cruel Deer Cull

The city of Grand Forks has passed a plan that would permit the cruel netting/trapping and killing of deer to control the resident deer population! Despite being informed of the extreme cruelty inherent in these methods, officials have decided to allow them anyway.

Netting/trapping deer is inhumane in all respects. Every minute spent entangled or trapped is a terrifying eternity for these easily frightened prey animals, who can badly injure themselves in frantic attempts to get free. And the deer who are removed or killed aren’t the only victims: Mass killings tear families apart, leaving young and weak animals vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, and predators.

Please politely urge Grand Forks officials to refrain from trapping/killing animals and to stick with effective, humane deer control methods.
