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.
