> Dear xxxx,
> Distressed Tennessee residents are calling PETA, outraged that the
> Tellico Village Property Owners Association (TVPOA) in Loudon,
> Tennessee, is considering using bow hunts to "control" resident
> deer populations. PETA recently informed TVPOA officials of the
> extreme cruelty of bow hunting, but our concerns have apparently
> fallen on deaf ears.
> Bow hunting is among the cruelest forms of hunting. Many deer who
> are shot are merely wounded by arrows. Bow hunters routinely spend
> hours tracking the blood trails of deer struck by arrows before
> finding them. Three decades of research tells us that for every one
> or two animals struck by arrows and retrieved by bow hunters,
> another wounded animal disappears, never to be found. And the
> slaughtered deer aren't the only victims: Mass killings tear apart
> families, leaving young and weak animals vulnerable to starvation,
> dehydration, and predators.
> Please contact TVPOA officials and politely ask them to take bow
> hunting off their list of deer-control methods.
> Thank you for speaking up for animals!
