Meder’s Nursery in Pittsburgh reportedly keeps three deer cruelly confined to a tiny windowless room year-round, except during the holiday season when they are exhibited.
To make things worse, we’re told that the smallest deer is often bullied by the others.
Deer are wild animals. In captivity, with their instinctual needs largely (if not entirely) denied, they can develop abnormal and self-destructive behavior, including pacing, rocking, swaying, bar-biting, and self-mutilation.
Please call Meder’s Nursery (412-653-7020) and urge its staff to take PETA up on our offer to help place these animals at a sanctuary or provide the deer with an outdoor habitat. You can also e-mail them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
