"The idea that we're going to shoot our way out of all of our problems, that ain't going to happen," said Priscilla Feral, president of the Darien-based nonprofit Friends of Animals.
Beginning today, the Devil's Den Preserve in Weston will be closed to the public on select days while deer hunting season gets under way statewide.
A demonstration will be held at Valley Forge Park on Sunday November 7th from 2:00-4:00PM, in the Lower Welcome Center Parking Lot to oppose the park's deer management plan.
UPDATE: FRIENDS OF ANIMALS AND CARE WILL HOLD A DEMONSTRATION AT THE PARK THIS SATURDAY, 9 October, 2-4 PM.
The permit has been approved for our group by the Park administration and the Superintendent has signed it.
Meet us in the parking lot near the bicycle rentals and restrooms. That is officially the First Amendment Zone and on Park maps it is identified as:
"Lower Welcome Center Parking Lot."
Look for the bright blue Friends of Animals banner.

A lack of sea ice in one of the warmest Canadian winters on record and a European boycott have ruined what was to be a banner seal hunt off Canada's Atlantic coast this month, according to officials and sealers.
Canada's Fisheries Minister Gail Shea last month increased by 50,000 the allowable catch of harp seals this season to 330,000, in defiance of a ban on seal products by the European Union.
