Luke Dommer Sr., 62; Led Group Opposed to Hunting of Animals

Luke A. Dommer Sr., who founded and led a national organization opposed to the hunting of animals for sport, died on Tuesday at the Veterans Administration Hospital in West Haven, Conn. He was 62 years old and lived in New Fairfield.

He died of cancer, his family said.

Mr. Dommer, who for years befriended stray and wild animals, started the Committee to Abolish Sport Hunting in 1975 with $12 worth of pamphlets.

His views were based on moral opposition to the killing of other creatures for fun or recreation and also on a biological argument that hunting destroyed prize specimens and thus violated evolution’s laws of natural section and survival of the fittest.

The committee’s membership grew to 5,000 and it sponsored rallies, demonstrations and patrols at nature preserves. As the organization’s president, Mr. Dommer became a frequent speaker on the issue.

He said deer hunters’ desires for trophy heads of bucks with large antler racks, for example, meant that the best of the species became targets for hunters.

Mr. Dommer accused the hunting and gun-manufacturing lobbies of controlling the management of America’s wildlife through what he called biased state and Federal game regulations.

The committee does not oppose hunting by people who depend on game meat for their subsistence.

Mr. Dommer filed court challenges to deer hunting in Harriman State Park at Bear Mountain, and in 1984 the Interstate Palisades Park Commission voluntarily voted to end it. The committee also won litigation in 1979 for the right to demonstrate at Great Swamp National Wildlife Refuge in New Jersey.

His efforts won awards from the New York State Humane Association, Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and the Humane Society of the United States.

Mr. Dommer was born in Manhattan. After serving three years in the United States Marines, he became a graphic artist and sign maker. Eventually he devoted full time to the anti-hunting cause.

Surviving are his wife of 42 years, the former Dolores Soto; a son, Luke Jr. of Manhattan; a brother, Paul of Bablyon, L.I., and one granddaughter.



^0Americans are the most over-entertained, uninformed people on the planet.

Ignorant about domestic and geopolitical issues mattering most.

The most important act anyone can do is stop using all mainstream media.

No exceptions whatsoever. It’s brainwash propaganda.

Toxic sludge for the mind.

Voices like this are NEVER heard on the mainstream media.

The "1%" is the global plutocracy, the billionaires.

A sociopathic, puny segment of humanity.

These people pretend to honor and defend democracy.

But are its murderers and undertakers.

Gross injustice, war, grotesque inequality is their handiwork.

And the murder of the planet

Just 8 billionaires own as much wealth as HALF of all humanity.

That's 8 guys are richer than 4 billion people.

The corporate media is their main line of defense.

That's why the best way to break their hold on us...

Is to break their media.

The corporate chokehold on political information is killing us.

Save humanity, the planet and its innocent creatures.

Increase public distrust in the mainstream media.

Defeat their power to mislead.

They lie 24/7. They sell you war. Injustice. Death. Confusion.

And they never stop.

Some more obviously than others, but they all lie.

So trust no one on the Big Media.

And beware of "entertainment shows".

Most also carry highly toxic imperialist propaganda.

Like the fungal NCIS series. Or "24", glorifying DHS.

The police state.

Or CBS Madam Secretary.

A ridiculous show, like The West Wing.

Telling us the US government is good.

That the president is good...that its cabinet is good.

That the US establishment—which they represent...

has noble aims. Rubbish!

Get the healing truth from citizens' media.

Like The Greanville Post and similar free voices.

Do your part to break the power of the mainstream media.

Defeat the presstitutes. The media felons.

Become a soldier in the battle of communications.

Which we must win.

As the ruling cliques prepare the world for nuclear war...

now it's a matter of survival!
