LETTERS: The deer are back in town

The deer are back and destroying my apple tree, Saskatoon bush, tomato plants and rose bushes!

The deer are back and destroying my apple tree, Saskatoon bush, tomato plants and rose bushes! I think it is about time the city council got off there busts and start doing something about the deer. I live in the center of the city and not out on a acreage or rural setting.

Let start culling, or sterilizing or just trap and release far far away! This mother deer are bring their young into town and showing the next generation how to do the same thing. I think there should be a fine for people who are feeding these animals!

City council should show some leadership and take some heat for doing something about the deer. They took the heat for their benefit package for themselves, now lets do something for the taxpayers!

Do we have to wait for some senior or the little dogs they walk each day to be killed, maimed or trampled? Do something now before it is to late!
