Remove all deer

I think that Oak Bay council has a start.

My disagreement with the plan is that all the deer should be removed, not just 25.

One deer is too many, as there is never just one. Deer are prey to critters like wolves and cougars. Maintaining a population of deer is simply inviting them into the community.

The recent report of cougars near a school in Cranbrook is testimony to that. I hope those who learned their wildlife management from Disney’s Bambi do not have to receive a hard lesson from such predators.
