We are judged by how we treat those (animals and human) over whom we have power. Compassion makes us human. We would like to believe we have big brains - let's us them wisely.
Were you robbed by someone in search of venison? HOW exactly does your cruel plan reduce crime? The person who robbed you, in all likelihood, wanted money for meth.
The "stray fawn" was likely terrified out of its wits - not trying to mow you down. Do you have an sense of compassion?!
Do you want a trap in your yard, and do you want to watch the DOW kill the panicked deer in your yard, and then look at the blood later, on the grass? You should have to deal w/ the reality and aftermath of what you propose.
Wow - what a plan.
You are all so articulate, and so correct. This incident is a disgrace, on a variety of levels.
Barb - you rock!
Wow - truly amazing that the County Commissioners didn't have the common courtesy/decency to at least give the City Council a "heads - up" about this.
onewhocares - couldn't have said it better myself. You were much more polite than I was going to be. Excuse me, I have to go puke now.
Just exactly what "disease" can be transmitted to humans by deer excrement? Perhaps e coli - which you are more likely to get in a package of hamburger from the grocery store! Teach your grandchildren not to handle ANY poop - you do tell them that, don't you - any they should be fine. Most of the deer that I have seen around town look really healthy. Maybe you should convince DOW to "take care" of the ones who clearly are sick or injured - a small minority. Why has this become a town of 'Henny Pennys" - the deer are coming, the deer are coming (the sky is falling, the sky is falling)! Buck up.
Well, clearly the unanimous vote would still have been unanimous, even had Mathers had the common sense to recuse himself, based on his conflict of interest.
