Cull costs need explanation

The actual cost of the deer cull as shown in two recent letters definitely need explaining

The actual cost of the deer cull as shown in two recent letters definitely need explaining. I understand the Capital Regional District added funds (our tax dollars) and Oak Bay paid a set amount, but in both letters the costs of the cull are way above the amount specified by the mayor when he quoted $500 per deer.

I read where it stated in the RFP that the cost was now $600 per deer but the amount paid out was at least three times that.

I know this cull was a secret mission by the mayor but now he has to explain to the taxpayers why the sudden increase in costs. How many more hidden charges are there going to be?
