Word of cull spreads

The news of your deer cull is widely known here in La Belle Province

The news of your deer cull is widely known here in La Belle Province and it is particularly close to us as we have visited Victoria on numerous occasions.

My family and I are hunters and what disturbs us the most about your cull is the method. Trapping is not fair to any deer and is cruel.

While the mayor likes to stress the cull will be humane, I read that the Oak Bay policy is to let the deer bleed to death if a gun misfires. The SPCA are bothered by this, saying it is not humane, and they want to discuss it with Oak Bay. But the city will not even respond to the request.

The mayor goes on to say the cull will be done secretly without giving dates or locations. If it is a humane kill then why the secrecy? All these indications make it appear the cull will be inhumane.
