Do not speak for me!

Dear Editor;

To Princeton and Area Issues;

First off, I would like to say that you do not speak for the people of Princeton.  I have been around this town for the past fifteen years and have yet been attacked by a deer.  I have deer in my yard every day of the week and, at one time, I counted up to thirteen.  My wife and I have walked through our yard when the deer were there and yet to have one of them charge either of us.

If in fact, as you mentioned, this individual that you talked about being attacked twice really was, I wonder what this person has done to provoke the animal.  A mother deer is no different than a mother from the human being species that would step up and protect her young.  Yes, we have a problem and it will be up to the provincial government and the town council to come up with a solution in order to control some of the animals that wander through town.  I agree that they can be dangerous at times, but only when they are provoked, so leave them alone and they will leave you alone until a solution can be found.

And please do not demand things to be done.  If you are that concerned about the whole issue, then run for council or take up the challenge to find a solution to the problem.  In the meantime, please do not speak for me as you are not entitled to do that.

 

 

Respectfully,
