Bea Whitaker-Hutton: ‘Enjoy’ the deer in Craig
November 5, 2010
To the editor:
I have been reading the letters in the Craig paper about the deer in town.
I am appalled. I lived in Craig from 1959 until 1974 and managed the Montgomery Ward stores. I felt Craig was fortunate to have deer in town. We moved to Dixon, Wyo., and deer go down my street all the time and my dog barks at them and the deer run the other way.
I have lots of hunters at my house from California and Oregon and they are so thrilled to see deer on our streets. They have never lived in a place like this and they love it, just to see them in town.
I feel like Craig is still my home. I shop there and use the hospital and nursing home there.
I am begging you, enjoy the fact that the deer are seen in town. Maybe that will slow the traffic. Think so?
Please don't kill these animals.
