Why can’t we treat our deer the same way the town of Churchill Man. treats its nuisance polar bears?
As I understand it, polar bears that become a nuisance in Churchill are tranquilized and kept in holding pens until they can be transported back to the wilderness.
I can’t imagine the cost of tranquilizing a dozen or so deer, periodically, and transporting them to Strathcona Provincial Park to be released would cost more than trapping and killing them in Oak Bay.
If I were a deer, and could chose, I’d pick the wilderness option.
