January 8, 2019 – Reisterstown, MD — Animals are being slaughtered on the grounds of Baltimore Humane Society and endangering staff and volunteers. A little known fact is that Baltimore Humane Society, the no-kill animal shelter in Reisterstown is also a wildlife refuge. Situated on 365 acres, only 221/2 of them are used for the shelter with the remaining acreage being an entrusted sanctuary. In recent months poachers have been trespassing on the property. Slaughtered and gutted deer have been left close to the dog kennels in addition to being found slaughtered in the woods. Even more alarming, gun shots have been dangerously close to where staff and volunteers work and walk the homeless pets in their care.
The Department of Natural Resources has been alerted, but other than observing multiple deer stands that have been built, they have not yet cited any unlawfully trespassing hunters. Baltimore Humane Society is asking members of the public to be on alert and let them know of any information leading to capture of the illegal hunters
