City Council of Rochester Hills makes a very poor decision in reducing deer population

We were at the City council and many of us presented alternatives that could actually create a permanent solution as opposed to managing a problem and creating an excuse for the hunters. Not to mention the message we are giving our kids who are encouraged to participate as DNR allows kids age 10-16 to hunt. Enforcing the speed limit, beeter signage, reflectors (the city was offered $20,000 from private funding), sterilization of the boys -takes 5 minutes are real ways of reducing the population. But what population - we only have 1000 deer in Rochester Hills and by killing some will not solve anything. Some areas will not be affected at all. I say to the city : let us not call hunting a sport where family values are reinforced. LEarn to live in harmony with nature and do not divide our community in this town. Let us understand that those who use weapons to kill defenseless animals are not sportsmen, they are cowards.

It is a shame that a few members in Rochester Hills City Council rushed to approve violence and killing without giving a chance to the alternative methods first. It is clear that they are clueless and just wanted to give the Oakland County Sheriff a chance to play with guns in Rochester Hills. Just to see how fair and open to alternative ideas they are, I want to mention that during the City Council Meeting, the council president, Greg Hooper, said the he always wanted to have the deer killed by bow hunting. What sick minds are leading this city!

Just shoot the vermine and get it over with. As soon as you Rochester tree huggers start finding deer with wasting disease in the herds or your pets and kids start picking up deer ticks with Lyme Disease you won't be able to kill them off fast enough..

Deer in Michigan are reproducing to fast.. there are to many.. shot 'em!

A special license to bow hunters would have put food in people's fridge and generated revenue. Hunting is part of our heritage in Michigan and this would have been a great opportunity to provide some quality hunts. I would have loved to have taken part in that.
