People for the Extortion, Terror and Abuse of humans (PeTA) is decrying a tradition in Delaware which is also responsible for reducing the state’s deer population too. Delaware news talk radio station 105.9 FM reports that the group has sent a letter to New Castle County Executive Tom Gordon to either allow for firearms, rather than archery, to be used during the event or call the hunt off altogether. PeTA states that there were reports of does running around with arrows protruding out of them in which many would take weeks to die off.
I am surprised at the suggestion that PeTA suggests using firearms for the hunt but have no doubt it is only a tactical suggestion as the group would ultimately prefer the hunt to be cancelled. As I have said before, there is a breed of tick that carries lyme disease and deer are one of many animals that have ticks on them that can carry and spread the sickness.
Lyme disease is a deadly, painful illness, and since environmentalists hate humans their opposition to deer hunting and cull programs to keep animal populations down makes sense. If deer populations grow unchecked, the risk of humans catching lyme disease goes up due to the likelihood of increased contact which, in turn, leads to more humans becoming ill or even dying if they become infected.
Environmentalists like to portray their efforts of saving animal species as a noble gesture conjuring up images of popular films, like Bambi, in an attempt to pull out our heartstrings. Yet if one considers the sinister intent of their actions with animals, like deer, one realizes the mischievous reason why environmentalists oppose hunting and curbing animal populations. It is nothing more than another back handed attempt to infect humans with a disease in hopes of killing mankind off.
