It is utterly shameful what passes as journalism these days. I was at the Board of Supervisors meeting. Five people, all from Salisbury, spoke in favor of this change to the ordinance. Fourteen other folks, from all around the county, spoke in opposition, sighting a myriad of well reasoned objections. Now read the story again and see how skewed a perspective it gives.
I would like to respond to the people in Chesterfield County having the problem with the deer. First why did they move into a surburban area where deer and other wildlife normally live? If they want their shrubs and flowers left alone from the wildlife they should live in the city. I wonder if the people have tried the many deer repellents, some like DEER AWAY used by forest managers such as Weyerhaeuser advertised in catalogues routinely sent just about everyone?

And where do you expect the deer and other wildlife to survive these days when people l are fleeing the cities and gobbling up all the open space and woodlands where our wildlife live. What do you expect them to do when they have no place to forage for food and live?

On top of that we have our Fish and Game Departments deliberately manipulating the environment to produce an overabundance of wildlife to create a problem like this to bring in the hunters to solve it, thus raking in more revenue from the sales of sporting equipment and weaponry.

Worst of all bow hunting is the cruelest way of killing an animal, causing it to suffer many hours before dying or being forced to live with a long arrow stuck inside its body. How any one wants to see an animal suffer that much makes me feel such persons are psychopaths.

May I suggest if the people want their shrubs and gardens to survive so badly without animal interference they move back to the city and give their property back to the wildlife from whom they stole it.

Really, Really my neighbors yellow lab looks like a deer?????????? Lady you either you feel off your rocker or you are a drama queen. I have never heard something so absurd. If the board of supervisors wants to enact that policy do it in the salsbury section and leve the rest of the county alone.
I suppose you have not seen the albino deer around the county. Many look just like a lab as they run through the woods.

We have non-lethal IC deer birth control why are the DNR continue to reject them? Maybe this is the reason why

http://mathew5-7.blogspot.com/2009/08/this-is...

What would the deer sports killing industry do without their deer herd right ? especially the large antlered deer where people are so busy with food plots and supplement feeding its no wonder why heavily hunted states continue to have too many deer problems. Remember Compensatory Rebound Effect comes into play as well which the hunting community knows and are just fine with it because more deer, means deer tags to selll preferably for the buck deer. Do they have "earn a buck"? I bet ya they got "hunters for hungry" too this why more tags can be sold so you can "give" the meat that you don't want anyway. Why take the risk for CWD right? Sports wildlife killers don't want to get sick.

Watch how these bowhunted deer dies. Have mercy on these beautiful sentiente creatures of God and do the right thing which is IC deer birth control.
