Don’t Slaughter Deer Living in City Park

Target: Sylvie Parent, Mayor of Longueuil, Quebec

Goal: Do not euthanize deer that are populating a city park.

About 32 deer are living a peaceful existence in an urban park in Longueuil, Quebec. However, city officials say this is too many and plan on killing nearly half of them. 15 deer are slated to be euthanized despite public outcries to save the animals.

In a pathetic effort to justify their actions, the city mayor says the meat from these massacred animals will be given to food banks. The authorities also claim the deer threaten the local ecology and increase risks of Lyme disease, traffic collisions, and property damage.

Sign this position to urge the municipal authorities to relocate the deer from the city park, or find another alternative measure to the irresponsible slaughter of innocent animals.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mayor Parent,

I am disgusted that you are planning on euthanizing the deer that live in Michel-Chartrand Park. I understand that the whitetail deer might be causing damage to the park’s ecology and private property, but killing them is a woefully irresponsible course of action.

These animals should be relocated to a more suitable spot, which is a solution your government failed to properly investigate. If relocation is unfeasible then there are numerous other control methods to be undertaken such as sterilization.

It is a shameful abuse of power to think mass slaughter is the answer to wildlife in your city. I urge you to find an alternate course of action.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

    RELOCATE THEM PLEASE, YOU TOOK AWAY ALL THEIR LAND GIVING THEM NO WHERE TO GO, SO DON’T CONTUNE TO ABUSE THEM BY TAKING THEIR LIFE…MAN HAS ENOUGH MEAT TO EAT!!!!!

  2. Maria Bertrand says:

    ALSO, IS THIS THE WAY YOU WANT TO REPRESENT CANADA, SOULLESS, VOID OF HUMANITY, VOID OF COMPASSION?

  3. There is something seriously wrong with humans who have this fascination for killing and being cruel to defenceless animals.

  4. Laurie Pichnarcik says:

    Why is it that humans only think of killing. These animals should be relocated. They are not hurting anyone. Please do not use the excuse the meat will be given to food banks. Show some compassion and find another way. Please.

  5. Carolyn Douglas says:

    kill kill kill. What should be done is force the thrill killers to hunt each other ….. it would be a start… IMO

  6. Jesus Christ…the answer is always the same KILL KILL KILL, this is not a GD answer or solution!!!!
    BIRTH CONTROL IS THE ONLY SCIENTIFIC, HUMANE, PROVEN WAY TO KEEP THE POPULATION DOWN BUT CERTAINLY NOT BY MURDERING THESE CREATURES!!!

  7. Those who want to kill these defenseless and innocent animals are HUMAN MONSTERS who have misunderstood their mission on this planet. The Earth is home for ALL creatures born here. Humans are NOT the only species to inhabit this planet, but ONE of MANY species that should coexist here peacefully. Those who see KILLINGS of these delightful creatures as the only solution, are DEHUMANIZED, DESENSITIZED, SADISTIC and PSYCHOPATHIC SELFISH MONSTERS. KILL THESE HUMAN MONSTERS INSTEAD SO THAT THEY LEAVE THIS PLANET AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND LET OTHER CREATURES LIVE HERE IN PEACE and SAFETY.

  8. Cathy McCormick says:

    Sickening! Repulsive! Abhorrent! Nauseating! Stop the killing of defenseless animals!

  9. Back off and leave these deer alone or you scumbags WIL PAY BIGTIME!!!! An eye for an eye!! OH YESSS!!!!!

  10. Nadine brundige says:

    Urban sprawl causes animals to find a place for themselves. Find another way to deal,with this problem instead of killing them.

  11. WHY IN THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO EUTHANIZE 32 DEER WHEN YOU CAN RELOCATE THEM?????? EXTREMELY INHUMAN WHEN THERE IS ANOTHER SOLUTION!! PLEASE PLEASE DO NoT DO THIS!!!!

  12. MICHAEL BAVARO says:

    HOW DO MORONS LIKE THESE PEOPLE GET PUT IN PUBLIC OFFICE?

  13. Michelle Stewart says:

    There is absolutely no reason that these deer should be killed. Leave them be. Relocate to a sanctuary if really needed. Do not kill them. It’s cruel and unnecessary

  14. You City rulers are part of the Animal Cruelty problem and therefore are not to be trusted! Do unto others!! SNEDING TH MEAT TO FOOD BANKS IS BULLSHIT…do not kill these living beings!!!!!!
    THERE ARE SO MANY NAMES i WANT TO CALL YOU ALL RIGHT NOW!!!!

  15. Deanna Moncrief says:

    Leave these beautiful animals alone…so sad.

  16. You’ve got to be kidding?!?! How much could it possibly take to relocate them?!?!
    Do the officials need venison in their freezer??

  17. and what next? Will you slaughter the squirrels, raccoons and the birds? Animals have the right to live and exist in the places we we have taken from them and made into cities. Is life not precious enough to let be. In fact, we shouldn’t just let them be- WE SHOULD BE PROTECTING THEM. Humans are the true virus, not Covid. Be better.

  18. C. Davis says:

    Please do not kill God’s beautiful animals! Just relocate them or close down the park, that’s their land!!!

  19. Yeah, right. 32 deer are an unsurmountable problem.
    But 8 BILLION polluting, violent, ignorant people aren’t.
