PETA takes Grand Forks to task for proposed deer herd cull July 17, 2011 Canada, The Boundary Sentinel


The email campaign has swamped Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor whose council approved an urban deer management plan only weeks ago. “I've had about 200 emails and climbing every day,” said Taylor who feels that the call to arms is premature. .... “I have written back – you have to look at the whole plan. The reduction of the herd is a dramatic move that would have to be preceded by some serious science and some serious work here. There are other communities that are further ahead with moving towards a cull than we are.”...The letter to members was sent by Jodi Minion, wildlife biologist with PETA. Minion called on advocates to, “Please politely urge Grand Forks officials to refrain from trapping/killing animals and to stick with effective, humane deer control methods.”
