Help stop the slaughter of deer in Fairfield

Fairfield’s Conservation Commission subcommittee on “deer management” is pushing to kill deer in the town of Fairfield. Members have used scare tactics and misinformation to promote a violent and ineffective assault on innocent animals.

As we understand it, if the Conservation Commission approves of a killing scheme, Open Space regulations will need to be changed. We need to get the message out that we do not want Fairfield to become a place where violence is perpetrated against deer who are part of an urban environment and deserve to be let alone.

We will send out updates as necessary. In the meantime, please contact the Chairman of the Conservation Commission. Please let us know if you do send a letter and if you receive a response.

You may also contact First Selectman Flatto’s office at 203-256-3030 as it will help for that office to be aware of the public’s opposition to this ghastly proposal.

“This deer hunt isn’t justified morally or scientifically. It’s offered to appease a few local hunters who have long had far too much influence locally and nationally. The deer should be off-limits to hunters, and those who find pleasure in killing deer should instead control themselves,” says Priscilla Feral, President, Friends of Animals.
