Urge Grand Forks, B.C., to Oppose Trapping, Killing Deer
The city of Grand Forks has passed a plan that would permit the cruel netting/trapping and killing of deer to control the resident deer population!
Despite being informed of the extreme cruelty inherent in these methods, officials have decided to allow them anyway. Netting/trapping deer is inhumane in all respects. Every minute spent entangled or trapped is a terrifying eternity for these easily frightened prey animals, who can badly injure themselves in frantic
attempts to get free. And the deer who are removed or killed aren’t the only victims: Mass killings tear families apart, leaving young and weak animals vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, and predators.
Please politely urge Grand Forks officials to refrain from trapping/killing animals and to stick with
effective, humane deer control methods.
Send polite comments to:
The Honorable Brian Taylor Mayor of Grand Forks
Grand Forks City Council

INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS
Subsidize Organic Vegan Farming
1. We need to subsidize Organic Vegan Farming more than what exists for corporate animal farming.
2. Organic Vegan Farming is an environment friendly agriculture that we should choose for a sustainable living. It can absorb CO2 in the atmosphere to decelerate climate change.
3. Subsidizing organic farming can produce abundant nutrient and healthy foods for all consumers with affordable price which in return will reduce the Medicare cost tremendously. It is the first baby step to accommodate the trend of increasing population who are on a plant-based diet.
4. Subsidizing organic farming can encourage and help animal farmers to make smooth transition to organic vegan farmers. The policy will help to reduce methane, the most potent Greenhouse Gas and the primary killer for the current climate change disasters all over the world.
