deer (the �official� count) in Death Park (fka Shawnee Mission Park) over the

Subject: Re: DEATH PARK DEER: The latest disturbing developments
understand correctly you are a self-proclaimed autodidact. If so, please take
the time to educate yourself on who we are and what we do, and not follow the
misinformation and ignorance that you are regurgitating. We euthanized 312 deer
in 3 nights while training law enforcement personnel to be able to continue
management in the future in the most humane way possible. There were no crippled
deer and all were shot in the brain. The meat processor and State biologist can
verify this because they saw every carcass, and they have no reason to lie about
their observations. In fact, the State would prefer hunting, so if we had
conducted ourselves improperly they would have called us to task to have hunting
be the only permitted management option.
Also, please realize that my
organization was instrumental in the research that allowed for the registration
of GonaCon, the vaccine that was part of your proposed solution. I am conducting
100 surgical sterilization next month in Missouri as part of a suburban deer
management program. This is an initiative to come up with an alternative
non-lethal solution that can be practical and cost effective in developed
And remember millions of �semi-tame� cats and dogs are
euthanized every year.

I will admit that I�m no
expert on you, your company, or your �services,� but I�ve done enough homework
to know that while you are not the cause, you are an abhorrent symptom of the
dominant culture and its obsessions with death, killing, dominating, profiting,
�wise use� (my favorite euphemism for abusing nature and nonhuman animals), and
satiating human desires at the expense of other sentient beings and the Earth.
In an anarcho-vegan world (which we probably won�t see in our lifetime, but if
Homo sapiens are to remain extant, humanity will probably be forced to
reorganize and evolve into such a sociocultural and economic construct�since
we�re destroying the planet), you would be tried and severely punished (perhaps
executed) for premeditated mass murder of sentient beings.
I have watched the
video that Steve Hindi captured of that horribly botched �sharp-shooting� you
orchestrated that devolved into chaos, mayhem, and the shooters resorting to
suffocating deer with plastic bags over their heads. God only knows what Hindi
had captured on the confiscated cameras which you or the rangers wiped clean.
And God only knows what happened out there in Death Park. It took the FBI, the
JOCO Sheriff Department, city police, the park police, and a ridiculous
restraining order, but they managed to keep me out of the areas where you were
baiting and preparing for the democide. Otherwise, you can bet I would�ve had
you on �candid camera.� One day someone will capture you on film and shut you
I saw the photos, have spoken to activists and have read accounts of
the helicopter massacre of Axis deer you perpetrated at Pt. Reyes.
gunning down 313 deer in 3 nights at Death Park? That�s a bloodbath. What�d you
I�ve read of your butchery you call sterilization (saw a photo of
you with a scalpel in one hand and a deer ovary in the other), which by the way
is NOT a nonlethal means of deer overpopulation control I support. Your
sterilization and IC projects are merely vehicles for you to maintain your
tax-exempt status. You aren�t pulling the wool over my eyes.
GonaCon is NOT the IC that we
proposed in our nonlethal plan. We suggested the use of PZP, which Jay
Kirkpatrick has been studying for years�and as he states, �It works. It works
WELL.� We ultimately began demanding (we learned early on there was no point in
�asking�) that JCPRD/KDWP use GonaCon since it had recently been approved for
use by the EPA, though even without that approval they could have gotten a
permit to use either drug for research purposes�an ideal scenario for our
suburban family park had they used Anthony Marr�s DAA to �remove� the �excess�
deer instead of paying you to shoot them in the face and splatter their brains
on the ground.
GonaCon would have been developed and approved with or without
your organization. Besides, I see the world in shades of gray. Polemics and
hyperbole aside, I recognize that you are not �all bad� and that you have made
some contributions to wildlife. But make no mistake about the fact that I also
realize that your ruthless barbarism cloaked by your intellect and
professionalism far outweigh any good you�ve done for nonhuman animals.
to call shooting another living, sentient being in the head �euthanasia� is a
criminal abuse of language. At the end of your missive to me, you reference the
millions of domestic companion animals whom are euthanized each year (a practice
which I utterly abhor�I have several rescue animals in my family and make
regular donations to no-kill shelters). As malevolent a practice as that is
(Nathan Winograd has crafted a brilliant plan to implement nationwide no-kill
shelters), even animal shelters generally euthanize with drugs. But then again,
I suppose bullets are cheaper.
I recognize that state conservation agencies
like the KDWP are all about killing too, though for slightly different reasons
than you. I�m all too familiar with the complex social, cultural, economic, and
political dynamics that enable the 15 million or so US hunters and
�conservationists� like Lloyd Fox to maintain their self-appointed place as
�guardians of over-populated species� and of �biodiversity.�
As with most
forms of nonhuman animal exploitation and slaughter, it comes down to human
monetary gain, �tradition,� comfort, pleasure or convenience�with an utter
disregard for sentience and for the growing body of cognitive ethology studies
showing that the individuals that people like you and hunters wantonly massacre
lead relatively rich intellectual, emotional, and social lives. It takes a
souless person, Tony, to reify or objectify thinking, feeling individuals to the
extent that you can eradicate them like a flea infestation, murdering them,
tearing apart families, and leaving fawns motherless before they�re
And for you to present yourself as the only alternative to
their blood-sport is both mendacious and representative of a false dichotomy.
Like you, Tony, I�m a smart, educated man. So don�t insult my intelligence by
suggesting that it isn�t possible to utilize a variety of nonlethal means to
manage human-caused over-populations of wildlife. In this specific instance, we
had Anthony Marr, In Defense of Animals, and thousands of grass roots activists
around the world poised to pour their time, money, brainpower, and labor into
creatively implementing a comprehensive nonlethal deer management plan in Death
Park. JCPRD and KDWP let the deer overpopulation problem spiral out of control
for several years and then simply marched in lock-step with the prevailing
culture of death, anthropocentrism, and speciesism by paying you handsomely to
slaughter our precious deer and by authorizing a bow hunt, which won�t happen if
my group has anything to say about it. You and your butchers have already plowed
enough deer six feet under.
You, sir, are an abomination from a moral
standpoint. And practically speaking, your�re a dinosaur�-a vestigial remnant of
a culture of death that�s gasping its last, choking on the noxious fumes of its
own excrement. We�ve fouled our own nest to the extent that we, as a collective
species, are drowning in our own effluent.
Meanwhile, empathy deficient
bullies like you surf the wave of humanity�s peak as �lords and masters� of the
Earth. Be careful, Tony.
When Mother Nature reaches out and bitch slaps us
(Homo rapiens), that wave will hurl you face-first into the craggy rocks hugging
the shore-line and you and your pitiless cohorts are going to find yourselves
mangled beyond recognition.
