As we go into the the Holiday Weekend here’s where we have been and where we are now. Links to important info, articles and contacts here in this update.
The June 30th surrender date was avoided by injunction. Many thanks to Attorney James P. Roman for helping us act on very short notice. All action to take the deer was temporarily stayed, with a hearing for both parties to present their case on July 24th.
Cindy was in touch with Attorney Val Washington who was very generous and supportive.
Here’s more about Counselor Washington
Contacting the Animal Legal Defense Fund is in the works.
The Humane Society says they cannot help, however, volunteers continue to contact them about these deer.
New media releases/talking points are being generated. Plans are in the works for further immediate expansion of media coverage.
Here are links to the all articles and TV generated so far:
Continued contact with the Governor’s office is helpful. More next week.
We do appreciate Senator Valesky’s willingness to help initially. Disappointed that they feel there is nothing more they can do for these does, but we will continue to keep them in the loop.
MOST IMPORTANT – The petition to save these deer has surpassed 150,000 signatures.
Can we get to 200,000? Yes, we can with your continued support and willingness to share with your friends, family, neighbors, work mates, anyone who would like to help. Here’s the link
ALSO MOST IMPORTANT – A long battle ahead is foreseen with a questionable outcome. Even ONE dollar from everyone who supports this cause would easily pay for legal fees to keep Deirdre & Lily in their home.

In all your dealings with questions about the case on FB, in blogs, etc., in talking with officials, and government representatives, whether they agree with us or not, we really want to thank you for keeping things polite.
Many thanks for all your help and support. Please take some special time this weekend to hug the humans and animals who have your hearts.
