Letters: Deer cull question response

Oak Bay resident responds to "streeter" question on deer cull

Very happy to see the four answers that residents provided when asked about a deer cull in Sooke.

If these same questions were asked in Oak Bay the results would be the same despite the fact the mayor states that the majority want a deer cull.

Unfortunately the mayor of Oak Bay cannot see past the tweed curtain when he talks about deer/vehicle collisions. He is always stating that there were some 30 plus. I guess he does not know that these accidents also happen outside of Oak Bay.

And, if a car runs into a deer should we blame the deer? Cars run into cars and cars run into people. Should we cull cars or people. No. Let’s just take the easy way out and kill the animal. This year it’s deer next year any guesses what it might be? Raccoons, squirrels, crows, seagulls?
