Three Deer TRAPPED in Small Roomdraft2

This achievement is no longer active. Please check out the Take Action page for more activities to help animals.

 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 customercare@meders.com

Let us know how the call went or submit a screenshot of your e-mail for 500 points by clicking “Get Points” above!

    I called there a few minutes ago and the woman on the other end was rude. I called her and asked if she still had the deer she said they were pets and she wasn’t going to put them outside and for everyone to stop calling. then she hung up. I don’t like her :/ she wouldn’t even listen.

    This is what I have posted on Facebook!
    I just called again, and this moron said they are born and bred to live like this. PETA has even offered to help them with an outdoor area for these poor animals. Please call them and let them know how cruel this is. Here is the link to see more: http://bit.ly/XLiKAl

        Could you call back tomorrow? Even if you aren’t able to get through to someone who can “help,” it’s still important to call and to urge staff (which would technically be anyone who answers the phone) to take PETA up on our offer to help place these animals at a sanctuary or provide the deer with an outdoor habitat.

    Jeez Louise, this is freakin’ CREEPY! They are DEER, living things! I’d probably start harming myself as well if I was trapped in an asylum like that! Gosh, and humans think they’re great….-.- Sickening.

    This is not right. They only care about money. I hope they are forced to live in a small room.

    It is cruel to keep her animals to, they will destroy. If they can not properly care for their animals they should be prohibited to have!
