Bambi vs Ferrari?

There is a bill before the state senate this Thursday, MC2-13. It makes it easier to organize hunts to reduce the overpopulation of deer in neighborhoods in Montgomery County. Please contact the Montgomery County Del if you support this issue ASAP. I have included the email addresses and a sample letter if you don't have time to write your own. Please spread the word.

Dear Montgomery County Delegation re. MC2-13,

Our neighborhood is being over run with Deer. Many of my neighbors and their pets have suffered from Lyme’s disease. The damage the deer are causing to the enviroment and our properties is devastating. Please pass MC2-13.

Regards,



Send to these two addresses:

LOL, too funny Jim.

We have a problem with foxes in our neighborhood killing the wabbits.

My wife went to walk our dog last night and there was a well-fed fox at our front door.

I gave him your address.

Call in Ray Lewis, I'm sure he will be able to rid the rats for his own purpose.

Looks like the bill passed the commitee on Friday 5 for and 2 against. Aruna Miller and Susan Lee voted against it in case you want to know who to vote against in Nov.

Hopefully the rest of the Montgomery Co Delegation will vote for it. I was told if the Montgomery Delegation votes for it the rest of the state will vote for it since it only affects Montgomery County. Still send emails to the Delegation until it passes. I love animals but I can see we have way to many deer and we have created the perfect habitat for them to thrive.

Rather than killing off the herd, why not just provide the deer with contraceptives?

Apparently the "Just say NO" approach isn't working

The doe's were okay with it but the bucks just didn't like wearing the condoms or having to carry them around

Oral contraceptives, not deer condoms.

It's very hard to get the doe's to remember to take the pills every day.

It would be nice if they would just hit them with knock out darts and spay them but no one is willing to pay to do that. Most estimates I've read about for administering birth control were close to $1000 per deer per dose. If you use dart guns to administer than good luck getting close enough to the deer the next time a dose is needed.

We have created perfect habitat for the deer and they thrive in the burbs to the detriment of trees and many other small animals that rely on the low growth in the wooded areas to survive.
