Do something about the deer

I’m tired of chasing these beasts and at 80 years old, I shouldn’t have to.

Dear Editor,

Is there any reason why Princeton residents haven’t been told the results of the deer survey that was sent out months ago and when, if ever, is something going to be done to reduce their population?

A few days ago I caught one entering my carport. I went out the door yelling and making a racket—it was gone, right now. (There is nothing in my carport to entice them in.)

I’m tired of chasing these beasts and at 80 years old, I shouldn’t have to. I don’t understand how people can think that they are so cute when they tromp through yards and gardens, chomping on anything in their path and leaving their droppings. I don’t see any cuteness in this.

When deer are seen just ahead of you when driving, instead of stopping while they saunter across the road or just stand there, just slow down some and lay on the horn. They quickly get out of the way. Make it less comfortable for them and they just might move on elsewhere.

Now that Councilman Doug Pateman is taking on the deer problem I am hoping that something will be done to reduce the deer population and soon. It’s been dragging on and talked about for much too  long with no change.

No more empty words —it’s time for action!
