The shooters come at night, killing a many deer as they can. Even though it has been proven that there are more humane ways of animal control the brutal medieval methods remain in place. In the middle of the capitol of the United States hunters may use their deadly weapons.
If you live in the area please help:
“Sadly, the killing of the Rock Creek Park deer has started. We must show the public, the courts, and the executive and legislative authorities that we do not accept the slaughter the park has been carrying out on our deer.
We have already been out protesting on an emergency basis (when our surveillance team finds they are setting up to shoot deer) , and that will continue. But we also want to hold scheduled daytime rallies. I am getting ready to schedule the first one and would like your help with it. There are at least three ways you could help.
- “Help with scheduling. The major goal in a scheduled rally is to get people out to show support, so we want to make it as convenient as possible for everyone who would like to join, especially among our active supporters in the area. I have already heard that a number of people will be gone for a substantial amount of time in December, so I do not plan to hold this until January. I would like to know from you what days and times would be most convenient. Typically we have held most scheduled rallies on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. Is that a good time for you? Or would another day of the week or time of day be better? Also, which weekends would be good. I think it should be within the first few weeks of January – say by Sunday January 18 at the latest. If you are interested in joining, let me know what within this range would be a good time for you. I would like to hear from you within a week of this email so that we can set a date and have ample time to publicize it well ahead of time.
- Help with publicizing. Are you in a position to help pass the word about a scheduled rally? Either among your personal friends or a group or facebook page you belong to whose members are likely to be interested in our cause?.
Also, if you are good with turning excel files into email distribution lists, we could use your help. We need to distill an excel file of 5,000 supporters from all over the world into a series of 50-person distribution lists of supporters from the DC area.
Please let me know if you can help with either of these areas.
- Are you interested in joining some of the emergency protests?. We have no way of knowing when these will be until the night of the kill, usually after 8 or 9 PM. We have a group of people who come out if they are able on that night. If you would like to join us please let me know.
Finally if there are other ways you could help that I haven’t mentioned, please let me know. We are immensely grateful for your support of the deer. With your help we can eventually stop this senseless killing.
