Well, it has made the headlines. The Deer Committee has been dissolved and none too soon. It was a total fiasco from the very beginning.
This valley has been the deer’s winter range for a millennium of years. They do not respect any boundaries and go where they please and need no tracking device to find their way yet there are deer still roaming with those damn devices draped about their necks. To me that is unadulterated cruelty and must be removed now if not sooner. Those that instituted this should have them placed about their necks and left there until they fall off as they claim they shall eventually.
Neither do I see how they will fall off they are bolted on and serving no purpose but chafing the poor creature’s neck raw.
No doubt it cost money to have them installed and it will cost money to have them removed. The taxpayer should not be held to account. Those that instituted this program should be held accountable to suffer the cost.
Let the wildlife go free. They are harming nothing and no one.
