Katherine Compestine: Seeing deer ‘a privilege’


To the editor:

We woke up Wednesday morning seeing about six or seven beautiful deer gracing our yard. They are so lovely and peaceful, and it’s a privilege to have them there. 

I hope the minority doesn’t rule because they don’t want them. We, the majority, want to live with the deer.

Craig wouldn’t be Craig if it wasn’t for the deer. As far as them being a nuisance, dogs cause more dangers because some dog owners don’t train them properly. As far as driving, you better be looking out for anything that may come on the road — deer, dogs or children.

If the minority does get rid of the deer, then they will be after the dangerous squirrels, birds and any other things that they want to get rid of.

If you don’t like the wildlife, move to cities that have nothing but traffic, crime and drug users, and maybe you will be happier there. My choice is the deer, birds and squirrels.  

It makes for a much lovelier place to live.

I have those chrome whistles on all of my vehicles to scare animals when I approach while driving. I can tell you now they do work.
When I am driving and come near deer or elk, their heads pop up and many times they run away from the road. It is a small investment to make. These whistles cost about $10.00 to $20.00 for a pair, and are available almost everywhere that sells anything automotive.
But they must be mounted EXACTLY as shown in the instructions. If you are not going to follow the instructions, don't bother installing them.
