The U.S. Government/Congress

In New York and now Pennsylvania, Squirrel Kill Contests are wiping out the populations of squirrels of those in the affected areas.  People pay a fee of $10 to $20 to shoot these bushy-tailed critters, and a prize is given out to the person who can kill the heaviest squirrel.  

Of course, the heaviest squirrel will be a pregnant mother, whose babies will die a slow and painful death by starvation.  Such actions are not only inhumane; they set a bad example for children by teaching them a lack of respect for wildlife.

We urge the U.S. Congress to take action on behalf of squirrels and put an end to these Squirrel Kill Contests. 

Signed,

Leslie A. Zukor
