WHAT IS NET & BOLT?
Net & Bolt is an inhumane method used to kill deer in backyards where firearms
cannot legally be used. It is NOT a bona fide wildlife management tool. Net &
Bolt was modified from the “captive bolt-gun” process used in slaughterhouses.
Netting & Bolting free-range, wild deer because “they are bothersome” ( to quote
former Millburn Township Committee Person, Mary McNet.) is not a reasonable
BOTH STEPS, THE NETTING AND THE BOLTING, CAUSE MASSIVE SUFFERING TO THE DEER:
(1). NETTING THE DEER: A drop net is assembled in back yards, with bait placed
underneath the nets for several weeks. When several deer are present, the net is
dropped, trapping them. What is an inexcusably cruel method of killing, in
slaughterhouses, is even crueler when used against wild animals. The
domesticated animals in slaughterhouses are accustomed to humans. Deer are wild.
When trapped, they panic and thrash. They often break their legs under the net
and cut themselves and each other with their hooves. Their screams of terror are
audible (this is also the case in slaughterhouse). Some die of heart failure
because of the extreme stress.
(2). BOLTING THE DEER: After the deer are trapped under the net, an employee of
White Buffalo (the deer killing company that Millburn Township would contract
with) attempts to steady the deer while another fires the bolt gun -- a 4 inch
retractable steel rod -- into her skull. Since the deer are inadequately
restrained and are strong and heavy, they frequently manage to move. The
bolt-gun is then misfired into their eye, jaw, ear or nose. The agent must
reload the bolt gun before trying again. Death from the bolt- gun is often not
immediate, adding more prolonged suffering to already terrified animals.
Net & Bolt is an inappropriate way to kill all animals. It is especially cruel
for free-range, wild animals.
In slaughterhouses, animals are funneled through a shoot, to minimize their
movement while the bolt gun is fired into their skulls. Simultaneously, their
throats are slit. Even under the controlled conditions in slaughterhouses, a
large percentage of animals are not immediately rendered unconscious or
immediately killed. In addition, cows, pigs and sheep have large cranial-target
areas, compared to the very narrow skulls of deer.
