Return their area to them

Maybe more and more deer will move into town as these weeds are left to creep along.

Dear Editor,

I have been reading almost weekly in your paper about the attack going on that seems to be ripping the town apart—the “for or against the deer in town” issue.

You can’t help but wonder how many of these people have been to the outskirts of town. How many have seen the Industrial Park, the dump, airport, fairgrounds, along the trail and the Swan Lake areas.

Anywhere you look, noxious, toxic weeds, especially Knapweed have taken over. you can see acres and acres of this stuff!

I am sure that everyone wants the deer to return to the meadows and pastures, the problem is, there are no meadows and pastures for them to return to! Just ugly, nasty weeds.

It seems these deer are in town to survive. Maybe more and more deer will move into town as these weeds are left to creep along.

Perhaps what we need is weed control and a meadow and pasture replacement program with the whole community pitching in.

Perhaps if we return their area to them, the deer would return town to us.
