Urban cull opposed

When deer culls have taken place elsewhere in the province the areas have been rural

When deer culls have taken place elsewhere in the province the areas have been rural. Traps could be set in forests and fields where they are not always visible to the residents.

Urban Oak Bay has a different geography with very little, if any, forests or open fields. Consequently these traps will be set up amongst the homes and often in your neighbour’s backyard.

Do you want to have your children witness a brutal, inhumane slaughter of an innocent deer? Unfortunately that is the way it is going to happen. Trapping a deer in an urban landscape and then killing it is not the way a cull should happen. Trapping a deer anywhere is cruel.
