Taxes used for simple nuisance

I wonder if an Oak Bay resident found rodents in his yard would the municipality also use taxpayers’ dollars to remove them?

When I discovered a nest of rodents in my yard undermining my gardens I called a pest control service to remove them. No, they were not destroyed but relocated.

The folks in Oak Bay have it much better because deer which are allegedly destroying their gardens are being removed at taxpayers’ expense.

I wonder if an Oak Bay resident found rodents in his yard would the municipality also use taxpayers’ dollars to remove them? Somehow I think not. I think the taxpayers should question this. If Oak Bay can use tax dollars to remove nuisance deer then they should also use tax dollars to remove nuisance rodents.
