Be happy that we still have wildlife. The way we're going that will be gone soon enough as well.

Once again humans make me embarrassed to be part of the species. Unbelievable.

I blame the deer.
I have learned that to be with those I like is enough.

How dare these deer invade the city and roads we have created for idiots driving on in a car, truck or riding a vespa?
Lets kill all the wildlife so we don't have to worry about any inconvenience at all. Why not get rid of all the cats and dogs too....I stepped in dog *bleep* the other day, death is the answer?
Yeah it sounds crazy and stupid, just like those of you with an idea that killing wildlife will fix your stupidity.

Here's a thought, open your eyes and look around. Stop and think for a moment before making idiotic statements. Learn how to navigate the road or stay at home.

So you have some people here saying that the valley bottom was devoid of wildlife a few hundred years ago? Wow, biology 101 anybody? You think a deer is going to be digging through 3 feet of snow up in the highlands when they could come down to the valley bottom in the spring and nip off fresh buds? Who the heck ever told you there was no wildlife in the valley bottom? Head shake. Abomination of nature? That logic totally escapes me.

Didn't someone try to sue the city after tripping over a crack in the sidewalk a few years ago?
Maybe the Vespa rider will try to do the same...

Yes, but the City owns the sidewalks; they do not own the deer. :up:

So if it had been a kid he hit instead of a deer would he want to cull kids?
"Cook would like to see a plebiscite held to decide on a deer cull, “because council can’t seem to decide." Seems to me they did decide - just not what he wanted them to.

Maybe they should own the deer. The city could put them to work... Trim the hedges, clear some weeds and keep the grass short & fertilized...

Harvest the deer and use the meat for “soup kitchens” and food banks.

House them? In jails? Provide shelter, medical, dental, clothes and apparantly a drone will bring in all the drugs, booze and weapons they want.

I haven't had evidence of deer in my gardens this year yet and my tulips are intact for once.
Something happened to the downtown deer population.

It must be those pesky cougars have found different stomping grounds. The 40+ female population have moved on.

Glad the flowers are up. We have but a few mangled looking things that are trying to break ground that hasn't been mutilated by my skid steer or mini excavator. The apple tree has a few baskets in it but although we do have deer on occasion walking up and down the road, the local dog population, ours included, seem to make a deer sighting a rarity.

Deer I suspect will hang out where threats are at a minimum. Towns with fresh flowers and shrubs are like a smorgasbord for them.
