Stop violence against forest preserve deer

  • Article
text size: AAA

Many residents are unaware that bow hunting is taking place at an increasing number of our forest preserves, destroying the serenity of these public lands and putting us all in danger. We need voices of common sense and compassion to end this inhumane use of our land.

A grass-roots group has formed, Voters United for Wildlife Conservation, to end this exploitation of our forest preserves. Residents who are outraged by this misuse of our land can attend the first planning meeting to be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Carpentersville VFW rental hall, 301 Lake Marian Road.

A website, votersforwildlife.com, has been created to share information that the county has neglected to provide to residents on this important issue. Also, a Notice of Dangerous Conditions has been sent to the Kane County Forest Preserve office stating that they are recklessly and with gross negligence promoting participation in a hazardous "recreational" activity. This will give any future lawsuits standing.

Killing deer, 21 killed last year and two fawns, doesn't solve any problems, it creates them.

If you agree, please join me and take action to end the violence in our forest preserves.
