CRD deer population needs to be decreased

I agree that a cull is the only option left to resolve and alleviate the pressure between humans and the deer.

I agree that a cull is the only option left to resolve and alleviate the pressure between humans and the deer.

To restore the balance in nature it would seem to be the most humane action to take control the growing urban populations. It’s a sad situation.

The growing problem has been ignored by local and provincial entities for over 30 years. In my opinion, I don’t believe our elected representatives have acted in a responsible manner or worked toward protecting the health and well being of the animals living in our urban setting. Now the public is asked what we think we should do.

I am sympathetic to both humans and animals.

Hundreds of deer populate our area – lots of twins and triplets again this year.

Deer roam our streets day and night and do not move away when challenged at a close distance.

Many seek refuge in this forested area. The number of injured deer has increased with over the years.

We’ve also noticed deer appetites have changed. They devour every bite of greenery if it’s not protected in some manner.  So, to preserve and restore the natural plants on our property, we put net around the backyard.

This problem is not going to go away by itself, that is clearly evident.
