Target: Paul O’Dell, Director of Miami Springs Golf and Country Club
Goal: Stop the slaughter of dozens of raccoons on the grounds of Miami Springs Golf and Country Club.
An exterminator is going to kill dozens of raccoons who live on the grounds of the Miami Springs Golf and Country Club. This method of animal control is inhumane and ineffective. These raccoons have called this place their home and are about to be killed for it.
When there is a decline in a population, food supply goes up and the remaining animals reproduced more. It would be more effective if the club used land modifications and lessened the available food supplies. This would deter the raccoons to other areas that better fit their needs.
Sign this petition and urge Miami Springs to use the more humane way of animal control and to stop the raccoon slaughter.
Dear Mr. O’Dell,
A large group of raccoons currently live on the grounds of your golf and country club, Miami Springs. Please do not use an exterminator to kill the raccoons. This method of animal control is inhumane and ineffective.
When there is a decline in a population, food source availability goes up and then the remaining animals reproduce more. Therefore, slaughtering a large number of raccoons will not effectively remove the population living on your grounds.
Instead, you should consider using land modifications and lessening the amount of available food. With these changes, the raccoons will move to find an area that will better suit their needs. Please consider this humane and effective option.
[Your Name Here]
