Animal Rights Activists Plan to “Descend” on Annual Small Town Charity Squirrel Hunt


Animal Rights Activists Plan to “Descend” on Annual Small Town Charity Squirrel Hunt

Holley, New York, has a total population of around 1,800. It’s not even its own town. It’s a village inside the town of Murray, in Orleans County.

In a town that small you can imagine the size of the fire department’s budget. Since fire departments are rather important to the well being of any community, Holley has an annual fundraiser to help support their firemen. That fundraiser is a one day squirrel hunt called the “Hazzard County Squirrel Slam.”

It costs $10 to enter the competition and the winner takes home $200. Several prizes are also raffled off. In the slam, teams of two hunt most of the day and take as many as six red and/or grey squirrels, the limit according to New York state law. Whoever takes the heaviest squirrel wins.

That’s where the animal rights group comes in. A group called “Friends of Animals” has organized a protest to take place on February 16–the day of the Squirrel Slam

    As long as the protestors dress like squirrels, I think it’s a great idea.

      Excellent idea! Heaviest protestor brought in wins a prize!

    Good Idea, the squirrel hunters can have two targets this year. They should charge a seperate entrance fee for the Tree Huggers though and that would allow them to handle the town fie house budget for maybe the next two years or at least provide a bonus for this year.
    The Animal rights group forget that squirrels are a pest in many areas and not some endangered member pf the polar bear group. Oh I forgot the Polar bear is increasing in numbers even though their habitat is supposedly disappearing. “NOT”

      Where do you go to register for both hunts? If you sign up for two, do you get a discount?

      Can you register for the tree hugger hunt only?

    I people care about liberals as much people as they do animals the world would be a better place. They don’t mind aborted a child they are just garbage as far as a liberal is concerned, by step on a flea and Lord help you, they want to take you to court. A squirrel is a rat with a long tail anyway. they need to be controlled.

    If all the animal rights people in the state would give $100 to the fire dept’t fund, maybe they would cancel it for this year. This could be a good strategy for YEARS!

      Not going to happen. It’s been routinely documented that the most squirrely of these activists are also the cheapest when it comes to charitable giving. Seems they follow Obama and Biden’s lead.

        Which, on reflection makes sense. The squirrely taking their lead from the squirrely while protecting? Yep. The squirrels.
        Meanwhile, Fire Dept. I suggest you collect all the tails. Mepps is always looking for squirrel tails. Besides, I haven’t seen any of those tree-hugger types swimming with the fish yet. (I really wish they would, though. I have a great shark attractant that really turns them on!

    Finally! They’re outed! The squirrely protecting the squirrels. Always knew there was something loose running around in circles inside their heads. Now we know.

    One can only hope that some of the leftiods heroically take a bullet for a squirrel.

    They would never get away with a plan like that in the south.

    Hitler also loved animals but killed millions of people. PETA should use Adolph as there poster child.

    Forget the squrrels and use them for target pratice, those who win, get a new weapon and more ammo. If they send in a drone? Shoot the thing down, about as easy as hitting a squirrel I would think, as a matter of fact should shoot them all down no matter where they are or who is using them.

    Put a harassment bounty on the friends of animals. Pester them until they leave town.

    This is the most stupid thing ive read in sometime. I love animals but squirrel hunting is a tradition in my family. When i was young we were very poor. I hunted squirrels every day to put food on the table. Im 79 yrs old now and still squirrel hunt every season.. The taste is great.

    They might want to rethink that; they’re just squirrels too.

    I assume you mean the animal activists will climb down out of their trees. They should be very afraid that the squirrels will see them as real “nuts” and try to drag them back up into their lairs.

    You cant fix stupid!, the protesters should not be fed anything but lettuce while they are in town.

    Oh, come on Folks. Let’s just go back to the old ways. Don’t shoot them because it gives the Libs ammunition. Tar and feather them!
