AUDUBON ALLOWS BOWHUNTERS TO KILL DEER ON THEIR PROPERTY IN GREENWICH, CT

Through the end of January, the Greenwich Sportsmen and Landowner’s Association will be allowed to hunt on Audubon Greenwich’s property. To give the appearance of a “good deed,” they claim that hunters will be donating their kills to the Food Bank of Lower Fairfield County. [Note that this lack of properly inspected flesh is going to the poor.]

C.A.S.H. believes that Audubon Greenwich wasted their members’ dues for the benefit of a small interest group. They spent $5,000 on a report to give themselves alleged scientific backup and claimed that non-lethal methods of lowering the deer population there were expensive and impractical. Do you really want your money going to this organization?

Is it a surprise that the report concluded that bowhunting was the best method to control the white-tailed deer population? The only surprise is that they think they can fool all of the people all of the time.

According to a newspaper article, the Audubon CT executive director, said the hunt was not in conflict with the Audubon mission which is in part to “enjoy nature.” [Go figure.] As with Mohonk, this large landowner claims that the purpose of the hunt “is to protect the biological diversity of the sanctuary.” Will Ron Baker please do an analysis of this?
