The District of Invermere planned to kill up to 100 deer between February and March of 2012. The Invermere Deer Protection Organization (IDPO) raised their voice in protest and actively engaged in stopping the killing of the deer in Invermere.
We took legal action and delayed the start of the cull through an initial injunction. Although the extension of the injunction subsequently was not successful, we organized protests, engaged the District Council and worked tirelessly to save the deer in Invermere.
Because of our actions, District of Invermere was able to kill only 19 deer - far short of the 100 targeted. Our direct actions saved 81 deer in Invermere and we all can be very proud of that.
However, the District of Invermere may try to do it again - so the fight continues.
Please join our fight to save the deer of Invermere and support our actions. We need your help.
