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.

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

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