VICTORY!  Earlier today a judge granted a temporary restraining order against the D.E.C., barring them from issuing any more deer permits
until the end of March,  when another court hearing is scheduled!

"Opponents of the cull argued in court that the DEC should have done an environmental study before issuing the permits.

New York Supreme Court Justice Joseph C. Teresi in Albany County found that opponents 'are likely to succeed on the merits of these claims" and that "immediate
and irreparable injury will ensue" if the cull moved forward." (via Newsday)

Last night was the largest circus demo we've ever had at the Coliseum, and the least visitors we've ever seen attend!  Thank you to all who've come out.
There are more dates ahead so please help us keep the pressure on as lions, tigers, and elephants still need your help too!

Help us create a more humane Long Island.
