The Monmouth County Parks System is once again allowing bowhunters to kill deer in an attempt to reduce deer populations. Officials defend the hunt by claiming that there are no other viable options, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Your voice is needed!
Bowhunting is among the cruelest forms of hunting. Bowhunters often spend hours following bloody tracks before finding wounded deer. Many are not found, and their deaths are slow and painful. It can take weeks for them to succumb to their injuries. Families are then torn apart, and young and weak animals starve or die of dehydration.
Please urge Monmouth County Parks officials to halt bowhunting—and then forward this alert widely! If deer control is insisted upon, please share these tips.
