A deer problem

I recently received a letter from her Worship saying nothing could be done about our deer population.

I recently received a letter from her Worship saying nothing could be done about our deer population.  She went on to say that people enjoy the deer and intentionally feed them.  I didn’t know it was legal to encourage wildlife in our town by feeding them.  Where do you draw the line?  I, for one, kind of enjoy the bears so maybe I can leave out food for them.  Again you mention Ms. Murray – joke.  You can’t do anything about a specific problem but you have no problem wasting money on graffiti, a water park for winter or shrubs in the Ghostrider Park (not your cost) while the roads are crap.  When I was in the Industrial Park, I watched our City Water Department cruise the area almost every day and once even stopped at the GM Store to look at vehicles.  Maybe you can get some of your “busy” employees to chase the deer out of town.  When I wrote my first letter, a couple of my friends said, “they’ll tell you to live with it”.  Guess what?  They were right.  Let’s pretend we tried and he’ll go away.  You know something?  I won’t go away.  I have a lot of beefs with the new City of Fernie and even though my complaints fall on deaf ears, I will continue to write in and maybe more people will speak up.  I have some time on my hands.
