Deer Slaughter at Duke Estate (NJ)
- We have just learned that a massive slaughter of the deer on the Duke
Estates is now underway.

PLEASE COME OUT and help stop this heinous slaughter of innocent deer.
Even though the Duke Estate is private property, public opinion is very

Doris Duke's will wants the Estate to be kept a preserve for the
