Say No To Bc Deer Bounty And Killings!

Say No To Bc Deer Bounty And Killings!

Veggie farmers and politicians in Central Saanich, British Columbia (BC) are trying to change various levels of law to kill deer who are being attracted to crops. This could include a bounty on deer, increased kill limits, sharp shooters, and First Nations hunters.

Most people would not make the connection that buying organic fruits and veggies could result in deer being killed. Some Vancouver Island organic growers want this massive slaughter. Some won’t even fence their crop lands and won’t implement other nonlethal controls.

Please sign and share this new petition:
Say No to BC Deer Bounty and Killings!

Boycott BC Deer Kills.
