It is very disingenuous of the Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society to claim they are using a “science-based” approach to urban deer management. There isn’t any scientific evidence at all that deer contraception works. As stated in 10 does down, 10 left to go “this is a trial to see how it goes.”
We are spending our tax dollars on unproven methodology, while another three years will pass, and more deer will be born. The Oak Bay council was irresponsible in allotting funds to the UWSS. The Urban Wildlife Stewardship Society is not providing any answers to the urban deer problem, but only allowing more nuisance deer to be born and causing further delays to finding a solution, while using taxpayers’ money.
