Number of people who have signed petition urging state DEP to help “Grace” the deer

Grace, a doe located in the vicinity of Marlboro, has had a foot-long arrow stuck in her face since last November, and now more than 104,000 people have signed a petition calling for the state Department of Environmental Protection’s Fish and Wildlife Division to help her.

Fish and Wildlife attempted to tranquilize her last fall but failed, and subsequently suspected she was pregnant. Grace has given birth — and according to her supporters “is a great mum.” Now they are petitioning the department to follow through on promises to help her. Petitioners also want to create a no-hunting zone throughout the area.
