As an Oak Bay veggie gardener, I’m surprised that we have so many vegetarians.
Those opposed to a humane deer cull wouldn’t eat cattle, pigs or, heaven forbid, chickens – would they?
What also surprises me is that they don’t understand the heartache of losing your veggies to marauding deer, not to mention the financial burden too many of us senior gardeners losing our organic food suffer.
As an ecologist, if we truly want a healthy natural environment, we’d allow free access to the cougars to do the necessary culling, keep the cats inside, the dogs on leashes and move to electric vehicles or bikes.
Until we’re ready for this, a humane cull is the logical solution.
