Re: Cities Stop Deer Killings (for Now)|

Good News For Now!
In the Fall of 2011, Lifeforce's Peter Hamilton was like a lone voice in the woods protesting against a planned massive slaughter of innocent deer in British Columbia. We started numerous petitions urging cities to use nonlethal methods to prevent any human/wildlife conflicts. Many deer were killed while Lifeforce got the word out and threatened tourism boycotts. People joined forces and even new community groups were formed. It was inspirational. Due to mass public protest against the BC governments’ plans to kill thousands of deer it appears that the cities WILL NOT slaughter more deer this year. People throughout the world said they would boycott BC if they continue to expand their deer killing plans. The battle continues but the deer are safe for now.
Re: the now closed petitions (Stop Kimberley Deer Kill Plan; Stop the Invermere Deer Kill Plan; Stop the Grand Forks Deer Kill Plan; Stop Penticton BC Deer Kill)
Dear Premier, Mayors, and Councillors:
Please be advised that thousands of people throughout the world have signed petitioners urging your governments to stop the mass slaughter of innocent deer. It is great to read that you are looking at why killing does not work and that there must be long term strategies to prevent any true human/wildlife conflicts.
We have removed the petitions and advised the signors:
Due to mass public protest against the BC governments’ plans to kill thousands of deer it appears that the cities WILL NOT slaughter more deer this year. People throughout the world said they would boycott BC if they continue to expand their deer killing plans.
Thank you for signing.
Please advise if our information is incorrect and that you are planning to kill more deer.
