Tileston: Dealing with the deer

To the editor:

What do we have to do to get rid of these confounded deer?

On Tuesday night, after feasting on our purple Petunias (only the purple ones), a four-point buck tried to attack our friend, who tried to chase it away.

What has to happen before something is done?

Last summer, my neighbor across the street, who is 90, couldn’t go into her backyard because a buck threatened her when she did.

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.

Do we need a  “make my deer law?”

Don’t anyone be talking to me about the poor little animals. They have thousands of acres to live in; I have only one little house and yard.

Our state legislators need to help us change the laws that say deer are more important than people.

That will be an uphill battle because the hunting lobby is so strong and so well funded. So, fine.

Let’s have lawn hunting season. Let’s do something.
