Subject: FW: Please please share and write to end the mass squirrel slaughter for prizes in NY!

LOOSERS!!!!!!!!! The Holley New York Fire Department is holding a squirrel killing contest known as 'Squirrel Slam', a competition for children and their parents to senselessly shoot squirrels. Cash prizes will be awarded for… the biggest dead squirrels. I called the Fire Department at (585) 638-6884 to express my disapproval. I politely explained that this is not the image children should have of a fire department and suggested that rather than holding a competition to kill animals, they should host an event to raise money to save animals since they are in the business of saving lives. I encourage you to call as well. Thank you.
The event is scheduled for February 16th. There is still time to stop it.

UPDATE: Thank you all for your passion and concern. I just spoke with Holley, NY Fire Chief Hendrickson. He encouraged everyone to send an email via their website. He assured me the Board is reviewing all emails as they receive a CC. He told me they will consider not hosting the event depending on public feedback or not holding it again in the future. Please send an email via the following link: http://www.holleyfire.com/contact.html

Event contacts: Dennis Bauer (585) 794-3744
Wayne Moyer (585) 659-8063
Tina Reed (585) 331-3040
HOLLEY FIRE DEPT.

Also email the mayor of Holley: mayor@villageofholley.org

As public pressure mounts, they may reverse course and decide it is not in their best interest to kill animals. If they cancel the event, the news media will likely cover the story, which will raise awareness about the importance of showing compassion for all animals. Let's see if we can turn this incident into a positive for animals and the Fire Department.

Additional petitions and an FB event:
