MASON CITY – A Clear Lake man told the Mason City council that the hunting of animals in city parks hold not be allowed.
“If an animal can make it to the city limits, that’s kind of like their safe zone,” Peter Lagios of Clear Lake said, during a public listening post Tuesday night in Mason City.
“It’s like hey, you made it. Animals are not stupid. They know they are being hunted.”
The city council is allowing bow hunting in certain city parks again this year, and unanimously approved the measure Tuesday night.
“For you guys to now allow them to get pummeled with an arrow, through their skin, resulting in loss of blood, organ failure and death, I think that’s just like “wow!”, Lagios said.
“That’s just cruel. Give the animals a break.”
