Default Deer Birth Control

www.PETA.org:
"A Humane Alternative
There are 20 million deer in the U.S., and because hunting has been an ineffective method to “control” populations (one Pennsylvania hunter “manages” the population by clearing his 600-acre plot of wooded land and planting corn to attract deer), some wildlife agencies are considering other management techniques.25 Several recent studies suggest that sterilization is an effective, long-term solution to overpopulation. A method called TNR (trap, neuter, and return) has been tried on deer in Ithaca, N.Y.,26 and an experimental birth-control vaccine is being used on female deer in Princeton, N.J.27 One Georgia study suggested for 1,500 white-tailed deer on Cumberland Island concluded that “herd size in closed populations can be regulated in the field relatively quickly if fertile and sterile animals can be identified … and an appropriate sterilization schedule is generated.”28"

Wow, talk about idiotic. Some people just don't get it. There are more lauphs if you visit the PETA website and look through the "factsheet" on hunting.

Yeah, no kidding.

HHMMM, lets see here... Pay millions in tax dollars to control deer populations, or make millions by selling deer tags to several thousand hunters that are more than willing to help control deer population...

What a tough decision for Uncle Sam...

I just can't imagine the stupidity involved here.

Okay if your gonna trap them to begin with and they have no further benifit to the herd why would you release them. I think if they are gonna go through that they oughta donate the trapped ones to food pantrys. Better yet they need to relize that not all hunters are careless and dangerous and allow some hunting where the deer are thickest, mostly urban areas. In missouri you can kill as many does as you want, but it is really hard to find even does in some areas but you never have a problem finding them in the city that has NO HUNTING anywhere.

I think that a certain group of people have forgotten that humans (animals) are a part of the natural food chain. For some reason, people don't consider themselves the animals that we all truly are.
