The mayor of Oak Bay is so obsessed with the deer cull he is not even willing to respond to the SPCA’s proposal which would ensure the cull is humane.
In Oak Bay’ Request For Proposals they state that if the bolt gun misfires it is OK to let the deer bleed out. In other words, bleed to death. If this is what the mayor calls humane, I would hate to see his version of inhumane.
The cull will be held in secrecy, which only makes the chance of it being inhumane more obvious. With so many intelligent groups and persons opposing the cull for many very valid reasons, the mayor should admit he made a mistake and rethink it.
