Canned Bird Hunt in Sag Harbor, Long Island, NY
Please attend upcoming meeting July 17 or send letters. Alert from the New York Bird Club
The East Hampton Town Board will hold a hearing on the plan to expand hunting this Thursday, July 17. The meeting begins at 7:30 PM in the Town House (159 Pantigo Road, a section of Rt. 27, about 1/2 mile east of the town). We need to attend and speak up against the plan.
No more deer, birds, rabbits, raccoons, possum, or other animals should have to suffer and die for the sake of sport.
You might remember that the plan emerged last year, but was postponed. Our strong protest through letters and testimony achieved the postponement. Now the hunter-dominated Natural Resources Committee seems to have put the plan back on the table.
The plan would add deer hunting in Fresh Pond Park in Amagansett, shotgun hunting for water fowl on Gerard Drive in Springs, and three other, new hunting areas. We hope to see you Thursday.
If you cannot make it, please send a letter to:
Mr. Bill McGintee, Town Supervisor,159 Pantigo Rd., East Hampton, NY 11937.
If you can, please send copies toTown Board Members Pat Mansir, Julia Prince, Pete Hammerle,and Brad Loewen. Please urge others to try to testify or write.
