Nothing gained from cull

Questions arise as to why the cull was ended prematurely

So it’s over. The mayor’s cull killed 11 deer. What will that prove? Nothing except that the cull was a farce.

Questions as to why it ended prematurely say that maybe the deer are smarter than he is. Maybe there is not a deer overpopulation in Oak Bay as he has so often said or maybe the ministry revoked the cull permit when it learned that all of the mitigating steps had not been completed.

Of course the answer he gave does not relate to any of those thoughts. But do we trust his answers? I don’t.
