      The following is forwarded for Save Monmouth County
      Parks(TM), a non-profit
      organization of concerned Monmouth County residents
      who want to keep county
      parks safe for children and wildlife. We are not
      affiliated with the
      Monmouth County Parks System or any other
      organization.

      _____________________________
      Come out and speak up for the deer!

      The Monmouth County Parks System will have two public
      hearings on their new
      plan to kill deer in the county parks:

      Monday, May 2, 2005 at the Red Hill Activity Center,
      251 Red Hill Road in
      Middletown, NJ. Plans and maps will be available for
      inspection beginning
      at 6:30pm. The formal meeting will begin at 7:00pm.

      Saturday, May 7, 2005 at the Manasquan Reservoir
      Environmental Center, 331
      Georgia Tavern Road in Howell, NJ. Plans and maps will
      be available for
      inspection beginning at 9:00 am. The formal meeting
      will begin at 9:30am.

      If you can't make it to the meetings, please submit
      comments by telephone
      at 732-842-4000, ext. 4237, by electronic mail at
      wildlife@...
      <http://us.f412.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?To=wildlife@monmouthcountypark
      s.com&YY=16193&order=down&sort=date&pos=0&view=a&head=b> or by mail at
      Monmouth County Park System,
      Attn: Public Information Officer, 805 Newman Springs
      Road, Lincroft, NJ
      07738. Written comments should be submitted on or
      before Monday, May 9.

      You can read their reports on their website:
      http://www.monmouthcountyparks.com/deer/deer_management_main.asp.
      The
      reports are very carefully worded, and filled with
      doom and gloom
      predictions of what would happen if the parks became
      overrun by deer, to
      try to scare the public and the media into thinking
      that the deer are
      destroying the parks. The truth is that the deer are
      not overpopulated (as
      the Parks System admitted last year) and a hunting
      club has been working
      with the Parks System for years to set up this hunt.
      Background info on
      this hunt is available at
      http://www.geocities.com/monmouthparks/MonmouthParks.html

      Although the Board of Recreation Commissioners will
      probably vote for this
      hunt no matter what we do, it's important to show the
      Board and the media
      that there is massive public opposition to these
      hunts. In fact, an Asbury
      Park Press poll showed that most people oppose this
      hunt!
