People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has issued an “action alert” opposing bow hunting in Avon Lake after reading this article on Avon Lake Patch on an anti-bow hunting group forming.
The alert says, “Your voice is needed!” and urges supporters to contact Avon Lake leaders by email.
“Bowhunting is among the cruelest forms of hunting,” the alert said. “Bowhunters often spend hours following bloody tracks before finding wounded deer. Many are not found, and their deaths are slow and painful. It can take weeks for them to succumb to their injuries. Families are then torn apart, and young and weak animals starve or die of dehydration.”
