Montgomery County, Maryland, is reportedly considering expanding the use of bowhunting in an attempt to reduce deer populations. 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 Montgomery County officials to halt all bowhunting—and then forward this alert widely! If deer control is insisted upon, please share these tips.
