The fact is yes deer are wild animals. But, by the sound of this letter they were not showing any aggressive beha vior. They were merely startled by your grandson. That could have happened to him by a dog or even another person. Yes animals carry disease. Lepto is a zoonotic disease meaning it can be transferred from animal to person but saying deer are the main cause is silly. It is in dogs where it is most commonly found and through urine. So maybe instead of worrying about deer urine worry about your child playing near dog urine. Every animal could transmit a disease just like humans. Dont live life in fear of getting anthrax from a deer or you wont live at all. There are much more bigger things to fear than deer in this world for your grandson. Maybe fear thef idea of oil companies coming to Craig and destroying his drinking water first.
The wildlife may be trivia to you, but to me, they mean the difference of a quality life or not.
Nature is medicine to the soul, and without them what is left, but the disease of man.
I find it funny that you are worried about the deer getting into the coop and not other predators that love chicken such as skunk, fox or coyote. If you are upset then make the area your poultry are in animal proof so not only do the deer not come in but other animals. Losing your actual chickens is more expensive than feed at this point. It might be an investment but think about it in the long run. And thinning out a deer population might be good for the herd except only if it is the sick and old. A healthy deer population maintains good genetic diversity and healthy reproductive functions. Unfortunately I am sure other proponents of deer removal and the DOW wouldn't be willing to spend the time the check whether this deer or that one is healthy and could contribute to the gene pool. The fact is people live in the country and this is what happens. Learn to work with and not against and make it better for everyone. If it bothers you move to a city where the only animals around are squirrels.
Fight the power!
Tracy deserves to have a college scholarship waiting for him. I have seen and played alongside of him and he is unbelievable. It would be a tragedy if he didnt get one
Technically if you would like to discuss it, we are all illegal immigrants, we came from our home lands and claimed this as our own even though technically speaking it never belonged to us in the first place. The only true Americans are the ones we murdered and wiped out! So why dont you all stop being hypocrites and go back to your own countries.
This country was founded on the premise of religious freedom. You're right man hasn't changed. We are still killing, lying, stealing and using a religion to justify heinous acts. How many times has the bible been rewritten? How many times would you say the true meaning has been skewered and changed? I am sick and tired of hearing people whine about Christianity. You people are the biggest group of hypocrites on the planet. Ask yourself, what would jesus truly do?
You need to question your own book and stop being so ignorant to others.The whole notion that all Muslims are terrorists really goes to show your fear of not understanding and the fact that you have spent too much time in Craig and not in reality. I feel there is a lot to learn from someone of a different arena. I agree with onewhocares in that people use the bible to justify acts of terror all the time and yet you seem to be a pretty devout Christian. How does that work? The finger pointing method and blame game has been such a popular tactic used by Christians. Not only Christians but Catholics and Mormons and whoever else. Please I urge you to utilize the god given gift of free will and think outside the box and take a good look at your religion's acts before screaming and yelling at someone else's. You would be very surprised and perhaps disgusted at what you might learn has happened even in this very own country from reading a good book. Besides wasn't this country founded on religious freedom? Isnt it a person's right to be muslim and practice Islam without people like you saying they will blow up the nearest state building? Don't be ignorant and offensive.
The fact is, it doesnt matter what color your skin is, rather what you feel in your heart. Just because you are native doesnt necessarily automatically make you an expert. I would like to address some of the points of your argument, the first being that yes human beings by nature are violent and cruel but if nobody has noticed so is every other organism on the planet. The thing that separates modern day culture (if you would like to call it that) from past ancestors is not our advancement in technologies rather our lack of respect we have for each other and the environment. The United States govt is the biggest perpetrator of this always destroying and conquering not for the good of their citizens but for their pockets. My friend our govt has destroyed and demolished everything for the sake of having a nice house etc. I find it really interesting the correlation between religion and the actions of these individuals. If you are an expert in plains Indians you will then already be aware that in the Sioux language there isnt a word/phrase saying to own the earth. I am sorry for you that you have been caught up in this lie. If the govt is so great then why are the reservations the poorest places in the U.S? We are a society of greed and hate and destroy anything that threatens the opportunity to make a profit. As for your comment on disease, you obviously have never taken a pathology class or read anything similar because such diseases as small pox and such were unheard of until the Europeans came across. Our own govt would give blankets infested with smallpox through villages to wipe everyone out. In a sense they were sterile and had immunities to agents native to the area. Throw in people from a different part of the world and its exposure all over again. The western civilizations are filthy pigs in comparison. I find it all really interesting how you think just because you are native you think you know so much. My friend please go study up a little more on your history because obviously you dont know much. I love how you almost are defended the men that were responsible for your own nation's demise. Avatar was a good movie in that it properly portrayed the military's true intentions and lack of civil rights. It might have been overly exaggerated in some areas but only to emphasize a point. Have respect for everything and feel the connection.
The Daily Press reports the news. As sad as it was it was still the news.
