Tell Fowler Township Police to Ditch Cruel Squirrel Youth Hunt!

Reportedly, the Fowler Township Police Department in Ohio is planning to host a cruel “youth hunt contest” on October 14, during which children of all ages would hunt squirrels for prizes. Supporters allege that the activity is a family-friendly “sport,” but in no other team or individual competition are opponents chased down and killed! Kids who are taught to hunt are actually being taught that it’s OK to kill animals for “fun,” and in the process wild families are torn apart and orphaned young are left to starve.
