The town of Andover, Massachusetts, is using cruel bowhunting to kill resident deer. PETA recently informed town officials of the extreme cruelty of this method, but our concerns have apparently fallen on deaf ears.

Many deer who are shot are merely injured by arrows. Bowhunters routinely spend hours tracking the blood trails of injured deer before finding them. Three decades of research tells us that for every one or two deer struck by arrows and retrieved, another wounded animal disappears, never to be found. And the slaughtered deer aren’t the only victims: Mass killings tear families apart, leaving young and weak animals vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, and predators.

Please politely urge Andover officials to stop using bowhunting to control deer populations.
