Deer know no boundaries

Why should Oak Bay bear the costs of a deer cull without the participation of at least the adjoining communities?

Oak Bay has no boundaries and there are other communities bordering it. These communities have deer issues but are not interested in a cull. This leaves the responsibility on Oak Bay’s shoulders because as we know deer will migrate and it would seem that the number of deer Oak Bay wishes to cull will only multiply. That would make me as a resident and taxpayer responsible for theoretically all of the deer in the CRD when they decide to come to Oak Bay.

Without the participation of other communities in this project it is unfair financially. A rural community can perhaps do it as it is stand alone. Why should Oak Bay bear the costs of this cull without the participation of at least the adjoining communities? We cannot afford this.
