Story continues to grow

The Oak Bay deer cull seems to be reaching world-wide infamy

The Oak Bay deer cull seems to be reaching world-wide infamy. There have been so many twisted stories, inaccurate statistics and a complete lack of transparency by both Oak Bay and the provincial government that this has become one large fiasco.

And now, according to a letter in the Oak Bay News, people who had planned to visit Oak Bay are bowing out and advising their friends to do so as well. The mayor of Oak Bay seems to be so intent on a cull yet the opposition to it is growing. Stories about inhumane procedures and secrecy on the part of the mayor are rampant.

Friends in Toronto and Montreal are following the story in the media as if it were a soap opera, but with dire consequences to the deer. This is a quickly growing story but one which I believe will end in political disaster. It is unfortunate that the deer have to die to prove the point.
