The Global Conservation Group is giving away free “NO HUNTING” signs to anyone who lives in the United States. According to the International Hunter Education Association, approximately 1,000 people in the United States and Canada are accidentally shot by hunters every year, and nearly 100 of those accidents are fatalities. Another safety concern are deer/car collisions.
The Erie Insurance Company noted that the number of deer/car collisions rose nearly five times on the first day of buck season and doe season. The National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration also stated that most deer/car collisions happen during hunting season.
If you live in the country or a popular hunting area, you may want to consider ordering one of our free signs to protect yourself and your pets. Just email email@example.com
In addition to human safety concerns, it's important to remember that just as people, animals also have the same ability to feel pain, emotions, and the desire to live. The deer and other animals that are hunted have friends, families, and love each other.
To those who hunt to prevent overpopulation, please know that in Westport, where hunting as been banned since 1933, the deer population has been stable for years. According to The New York Times, every year, New York State increases the number of licenses to control the growing deer herd, only to report that it's even bigger the following season. Biological evidence exists proving that hunted deer populations have stimulated birth rates. The best way to create more deer is to hunt them.
