Drake Zimmerman: Killing deer ‘wrong’

To the editor:

I, Drake Zimmerman, am 11 years old and I think it's wrong to kill the deer in town. I only heard once about a deer attacking a dog.

But, the dog got between the deer and her fawn. All the deer don't deserve to die, they're just trying to protect their young.

It's also plain stupid having a person with a high-powered rifle trying to kill the deer. I love seeing the deer in town. I think that's pretty awesome seeing the deer in town.

Trying to trap them will hurt them and stress them out.

It would be better putting a fence around your yard, then the deer won't attack your dog.
