Another solution to the deer problem

Fence deer inside animal lovers' yards so others can enjoy their gardens

People are going about the deer problem from the wrong angle.

I estimate 80 per cent of people want a cull and 20 per cent want the deer. The deer lovers tell the rest of us to build a giant fence for a few grand or take up fishing (which I hate) instead of gardening.

I say the deer lovers build a giant fence, grow some lovely plants for the deer to eat then lock the gate and keep them in. Then they can admire the deer every day and my yard and my neighbours’ yards can start to look nice again, instead of the moonscapes they are becoming.
