JoHanna Wedemeyer: Deer plan horrifying

To the editor:

I was so horrified to hear about the plans to destroy the majority of the deer living in Craig.

I lived in Craig for a little over a year and feel that the deer were the best part about living in Craig.

Coming from a big city, it is definitely a rarity. There has to be a better solution to the problem. In my eyes, why not deal with the people who have caused the problem and not make the animals suffer?

People may be upset about the injuries or mortalities of a couple of dogs, but the real reason they are upset is probably their flowers.

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.

Impose fines on the people who have created the bigger problem of the deer not being afraid of humans by feeding them.

They are the real problem. What a horrific solution to a problem created by people, not animals.

Talk to individuals who live in towns who have the same issues such as Estes Park, where they have all of the elk.

What options are there other than a free-for-all, supported, huntfest?
