Secret from washington DC deer creek group

After our firm filed a lawsuit on behalf of several D.C. residents and the animal protection organization In Defense of Animals, the National Park Service has agreed to drop its plans to begin killing white-tailed deer in Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. this December.  Under an agreement reached with the plaintiffs in the lawsuit that was filed on October 25, 2012, the parties have asked the Court to rule on the matter by March 15, 2013, before which the Park Service has agreed not to kill any of the 157 deer that were otherwise slated for death by gunfire or arrows.  The Court has set oral argument in the matter for March 4, 2013 at 3:00pm.

Cape Girardeau’s first ever referendum will be on the April 2 ballot.

Please participate in our democratic process.  If the referendum fails, we will see the reckless and cowardly shooting of semi-tame deer within the city limits.

Please remember to vote YES for safety rather than recklessness.

Please vote YES for tolerance and kindness rather than cruelty.

Please vote YES to repeal the unsafe, cruel, misguided deer hunting ordinance.

For now, we have to work hard to make sure the referendum succeeds.  Keep Cape Safe will meet Thursday, 1//31/13 at 6:30 pm in the G. Hirsch Room at the Cape Girardeau Public Library.

Please join us.
