Letter: Comments by ‘wildlife haters’ silly

Residents' expressed fear of urban wildlife are 'ridiculous'

A young cougar shows up in Oak Bay and the rallying cry from the deer haters rises up. The constant verbiage from these people is ridiculous, especially concerns about children being attacked and such.

I wonder if parents of children who live in rural areas laugh at these concerns or do they keep their children indoors except when driven to school in an armed convoy.

Silly? Of course it is as are the comments made by Oak Bay wildlife haters. Listening to this fear mongering from our municipal leader is the same as listening to Harper claiming all Syrian refugees are terrorists. A little bit of common sense will go a long way on this issue but I suppose people who detest wildlife of any species won’t agree.
