With the backing of Regional Council, local wildlife advocates looking to St. Catharines MPP and Environment Minister Jim Bradley for action.
Short Hills Wildlife Alliance Spokesperson Robin Zavitz says council has voted unanimously to support stopping the Short Hills hunt and are writing a letter to Premier Kathleen Wynne and the Minister of Natural Resources to step in.
Zavitz says they are now looking to Bradley to step in and be more persuasive than he has been in the past.
She says Bradley told their group back in January that he was personally opposed to the hunt.
Zavitz says at this point the community is pleading with Bradley to call on Premier Wynne to stop or at least postpone the hunt.
The Aboriginal Deer Hunt at Short Hills Provincial Park takes place from November 21st to the 24th and November 28th to December 1st.
Once again guns or rifles are not allowed with all hunting done by bow and arrow.
The Ministry of Natural Resources says the hunt is allowed through Aboriginal and treaty rights.
