Take the Pledge To Give Deer a Chance
I am a Mt. Lebanon resident who believes that the Mt. Lebanon Municipal Government, including its Commissioners, ("Municipal Government") should not be governing its residents through bloodshed. Further, I am opposed to violence, including the unnecessary and purposeful killing and wounding of deer within Mt. Lebanon. Regardless of its position on violence, I urge the Municipal Government to conclude that the high density of Mt. Lebanon's population prohibits it from initiating or supporting all efforts and/or programs, the purpose of which is the unnecessary killing of deer. I advocate a progressive and comprehensive non-lethal plan of action. For that reason, I pledge to:
Observe all deer crossing signs.
Take responsibility of my garden by planting deer resistant plants and using nonlethal methods of protecting my garden.
Trim all bushes, shrubs, and trees close to streets to improve sight lines and create better visibility for both drivers and deer.
Stop feeding deer directly or indirectly by way of bird feeders.
Drive defensively at active times such as dawn, dusk, and during the Fall rut (mating season).
Contact our Commission either by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or during Citizen Comments and urge them to manage deer via nonlethal methods in our densely populated community.
Pass along this peaceful message to my neighbors and friends in Mt. Lebanon.
By signing this pledge, I vow to coexist with nature in a friendly, cost effective, community wide and collaborative effort.
