Deer cull not right

I just can’t understand those citizens of Penticton that believe there should be a killing of the deer in our neighbourhood.

I just can’t understand those citizens of Penticton that believe there should be a killing of the deer in our neighbourhood.

Don’t they think at all about how they moved into deer country when they moved here.  Why is it that they believe we humans should just kill off those animals that they don’t want in their neighbourhoods.

For goodness sake, I have walked our streets and have more than once come upon one or more deer as close as 10 feet away and stopped and spoke to the deer and it just stood there looking at me then sauntered on off on it’s way.

No attack and no fear on either of us.

Why don’t you just move into a city that has no wildlife?

I do believe most of us like to see the wildlife around.

It seems for centuries back … man seems to find the need to kill the wild life, unfortunately, most of the killing is done for the almighty dollar.

Enjoy life, all life.

There’s more to life than just you, and/or that almighty dollar.

Stop and enjoy it, you’ll soon be long gone.
