Council has brutal point of view

Elected members of the municipality of Oak Bay have chosen to harm, hurt and encounter deer with disregard.

“Animals touch our lives in many ways. We have a choice to harm, hurt and encounter them with disregard, or we can honour their existence by protecting and appreciating them….We share the earth with every creature, be it a snake, butterfly, vulture or kitten. After all, it is their world too.”

This quote is from Michael Kaufman, former director of education, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

Elected members of the municipality of Oak Bay have chosen to harm, hurt and encounter deer with disregard.

Every one of these elected officials, who voted to kill deer for doing what comes naturally to their species, ie. trying to survive, should be charged with cruelty to animals and should be punished accordingly.

What an unevolved and brutal point of view.
