Every year the Holley Fire Department has a squirrel hunting contest called the "Squirrel Slam." Money is raised to support the fire department. The hunt is open to kids and adults to come and kill squirrels. Prizes are given for heaviest squirrels killed. Encouraging kids and adults to kill animals to raise money for charity sets a very bad example. Please, have a non-violent activity to raise funds.
February 21, 2015 Saturday is this year's event date. Yesterday someone filed an injunction to hopefully stop the hunt. The motion will be heard tomorrow Thursday the 19th of February. I will post the hearing outcome. I don't feel too confident with the motion as they are claiming an Environment Review must be done for the hunting contest.
Call to action: Please, call the fire department's non-emergency number and politely ask them to stop the "Squirrel Slam" and have a non-violent fundraiser instead. If they don't pick up, leave a polite message at 585-638-6884. Here is the city website. Email, call, fax a polite message http://www.villageofholley.org/ 585-638-6367 (direct), 585-638-7540 (fax).
