Stop Hunters From Cruelly Killing Deer With Bow and Arrows

Target: Mark Ridley-Thomas, Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, Chairman

Goal: Ban barbaric bow hunting in the County of Los Angeles.

A young deer was reportedly shot with an arrow near a Los Angeles-area suburb. The alleged hunter, a man named Michael Rodriguez, claims that he pursued the deer from the nearby foothills into the residential area after his first shot did not kill the immature buck. Footage from a resident’s home surveillance camera apparently shows the deer running away in terror with an arrow protruding from the side of his head. The deer later bled out and died of his injuries.

“I couldn’t believe it. I’m like, ‘You’ve got to be kidding me,’” Chuck Tapert, who caught the incident on his home surveillance camera, told CBS Los Angeles. “Somebody took a shot at a deer right in front of our house in a residential neighborhood?”

The accused hunter, Michael Rodriguez, claims that he acted legally and that there was no arrow in the deer’s head. According to the LA Times, Rodriguez said, “I was following up a wounded animal and taking him out so he wasn’t suffering anymore.”

It is illegal to hunt wildlife in residential areas, and for good reason. However, this ban should be extended to the entire county, as bow hunting is a barbaric and cruel practice.

Bowhunting is a slow and ineffective way to kill animals. In many cases, wounded wildlife panic and flee long distances before succumbing to their wounds. No one should be using this cruel method of hunting regardless of their location. Sign this petition to demand that bow hunting is banned in Los Angeles County so that hunters can no longer torture innocent animals with bows and arrows.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear District Attorney Lacey,

Recently, a deer was reportedly shot by a bowhunter in Monrovia. The deer was apparently filmed fleeing with an arrow protruding from the side of his head as he bled out slowly. Deer shot with arrows suffer horribly before bleeding to death.

The accused hunter, Michael Rodriguez, claims that he acted legally and that there was no arrow in the deer’s head. Regardless, we believe all bow and arrow hunting should be banned in the County of Los Angeles

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    Jackie Lacey, Los Angeles County District Attorney

    Severely punish a man who allegedly shot and killed a deer in a busy residential neighborhood.

    A young deer was reportedly cruelly shot with an arrow in a Los Angeles-area suburb just yards away from houses. The alleged hunter, a man named Michael Rodriguez, claims that he pursued the deer from the nearby foothills into the residential area after his first shot did not kill the immature buck. Footage
    from a resident’s home surveillance camera shows the deer running away in terror with an arrow protruding from the side of his head. The deer later bled out and died of his injuries.

    This psycho deranged animal torturer Michael Rodriguez must be jailed for years for this fucks deliberate killing of a defenceless and innocent immature buck.

    How I hate and despise these hunting psychopathic deranged animal torturing monsters. These psychopathic deranged hunting monsters delight in murdering the defenceless and innocent
    wildlife. Kill this animal torturing monster.
