Solution to Deer Problem: Where is It? Letter To The Editor
A year has passed, is there a solution in sight?
It has been one year since discussion was presented regarding too many deer and the need to cull them. Since then there's been consideration to ask residents not to feed them, give deer birth control to these dumb destructive animals, but not, no, nothing regarding killing these dangerous, dumb animals. Will you be responsible for doing nothing?
Deer are in pockets by Giant Eagle on Walker Road, near the Ohio Assembly Plant, down Miller Road, and on Walker and Jaycox. Motorists have swerved and crossed the medium, been hit by these animals and yet council has not acted to eliminate this problem. Laughingly, if these deer were bear, vicious dogs, or mosquitoes something might be done sooner than later, but deer? What is being done right now?
Last week, when I was driving down Walker, five deer walked across the street and missed my car. Unlike what I heard on the city's cable channel that deer have become so smart that they know when to cross the street, the deer that I encountered were animals that almost got me killed. These animals have gone beyond being a nuisance; they are not cute, but they are dangerous.
What is our city going to do as it is mating season for these animals that destroy vegetation, spread ticks and destroy or kill motorist?
Do not be afraid of the residents who think deer can talk, know when to cross streets or plaster orange signs reading DO NOT HUNT. Be afraid that someone is going to get killed by these stupid animals.
