"Audubon donors deserve to know that their donations are funding deadly ideas, and Connecticut's people must insist that the Department of Environmental Protection stop making excuses to kill," says Nancy Rice of Friends of Animals.
This letter is in response to the killing of a small herd of elk living in Allamakee County, Iowa by the Iowa Division of Natural Resource (DNR).
Despite a glaring lack of evidence that these elk are infected with Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), Iowa DNR officials state that they must kill the elk in order to prevent this disease from spreading. However, no disease is controlled by slaughtering animals who aren't infected with it.

Your presence is urgently needed at a rally organized by Friends of Animals (FoA) and joined by NJ-based group Heart for Animals, on Friday, December 3rd, where we'll protest New Jersey's bear hunt directly to Gov. Chris Christie's (R-NJ) office at the State House in Trenton, New Jersey, during working hours so that critics of the mean-spirited, ignorant hunt are heard.

"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.
