Amused by debate

A man had to stop his car for almost a whole minute for deer to get out of the way. Really?

As a close follower of the ongoing “life and death” debate about those unwanted migrants in our midst, one can’t help being somewhat amused by it all.

Amused by what desperate means each side is trying to make a point, ignoring all reason and intelligence.

This, however, applies mostly to the pro-cull proponents who seem to depict deer as vicious carnivorous creatures.

A man had to stop his car for almost a whole minute for deer to get out of the way. Really? What a catastrophe, any traffic light could do the same.

Safety seems to be the big concern here. Do we realize the risk factor to our lives every time we get behind the wheel. Why are we suddenly so concerned about a bunch of deer threatening our lives?

The opponents in the debate are factual, reasonable and argue intelligently.
