Thank goodness they are taking care of the deer problem. These animals not only destroy vegetation, but carry deer ticks which spread Lyme Disease and other tick borne diseases. I love animals, but sometimes you gotta put your health and land first. This will make the safety and health of the whole campus better.

People who are against this hunt think that somehow deer are like "Bambi". They are not. Any more than skunk are like "Flower".

I'll bet none of them have ever had Lyme or knew anyone who did.
