The town of Invermere is reportedly trapping deer and killing them via captive-bolt gun in an attempt to reduce deer populations. Your voice is needed!
Trapping deer is extremely cruel. Every second spent in a cage is a terrifying eternity for these easily frightened prey animals, who can badly injure themselves in frantic attempts to get free. In order to be killed via captive-bolt gun, trapped deer are tackled and restrained and often bound by their legs, which only adds to their terror and often causes additional injury. Lethal initiatives also tear families apart and leave young animals vulnerable to starvation and dehydration.
Please urge Invermere officials to halt this cruel trapping program—and then forward this alert widely! If officials insist on deer control, please share these tips.
