A Call-Out from the Niagara-based animal advocacy group, Niagara Action For Animals

Dear Friends Of Animals –

The Ministry of Natural Resources & Forests is currently in the final planning stages for this year’s Deer Herd Reduction in Short Hills Park; the dates are as follows: Sunday Nov. 11th, Monday Nov. 12th. Sunday Nov. 25th, Monday Nov. 26th. Tues. Dec. 4th, Wed. Dec. 5th.

Last year the MNRF “assisted” and “hosted” what turned out to be a full blown trophy hunt in the park referred to as “The Big Buck Contest” by the hunters. Attached are posts made by hunters during the hunt last November.

NOW is the time to contact those in the planning process. There is a new Minister of Natural Resources as well as a new South West Zone Manager for Ontario Parks. Please take the time to send them an email and voice your opposition about this attack on the deer and the once peaceful park.

    We have just learned that the Short Hills Deer Hunt is now under the jurisdiction of the Office of the Honourable Rod Phillips, Ministry of the Environment, Conservation and Parks; 77 Wellesley Street West, 11th Floor Ferguson Block | Toronto Ontario, M7A 2T5, Tel: (416) 327-9720.
    I bet he would love speaking to Niagarans on this issue.


  2. Reblogged this on catsaremine3 and commented:
    There is no justification for this mindless slaughter of tame deer in what is supposed to be a protected provincial park; it is and has been allowed because of political correctness an d cowardice on the part of the Ontario Liberals under Wynne and long before under the Liberals; hopefully there will be the courage to change things and do the right thing on behalf of our animals with the new government in power; this capitulation to this radical group that call themselves “hunters” must end, especially when there are many at Six Nations who do not support these hunts; and the historical evidence is quite clear in showing that there are no inherent or indigenous rights or even treaty rights which would justify these hunts; the Haudenausenee of Six Nations were never even indigenous to southwestern Ontario, having been driven out by the last inhabitants such as the Mississauga and Ojibway; you cannot have hunting or any other rights(certainly not treaty rights!) over land you never possessed in the first place!
