Days before a deer slaughter (culling) was to begin in Lloyd Harbor,
Long Island, NY, the Animal Defense League put out the following alert:
THE BAIT & BULLET KILLING BEGINS THIS WEDNESDAY 11/16
YOU CAN STOP IT!
Beginning at midnight Wednesday/Thursday the village of Lloyd Harbor
will be opening two pieces of land and inviting in contract hunters with the Department of
Environmental Conservation to bait and kill all of the villageís deer. The hunt has been scheduled
to run through the end of December. One piece of land is the grounds of the Seminary of the
Immaculate Conception, the other is Caumsett State Park. In both locations DEC hunters will be
applying scents and bait in open fields allowing deer to approach them, then shooting them at close
range. The Seminary is volunteering the use of their property for the DEC hunters. We ask that
that they follow the teachings in their faith and choose compassion, we ask that they not
allow the hunt on their private property. We also demand that the incorporated Village of Lloyd Harbor
reconsider proceeding with the hunt.
Please stay in touch with this issue by contacting the Animal Defense
League of Long Island info:631-374-9096;
You can imagine our delight at getting this news which came from a
member in Pennsylvania!
LLOYD HARBOR DEER CULL SUSPENDED.
