Deer problem needs addressing

What is council doing about our deer population problem?

What is council doing about our deer population problem? I have deer coming into my garden and yard, eating my plants and shrubs. Don’t tell me to put up a fence! If I lived in the country I would, but in the City I should not have to. You spend money stupidly on such things as “graffiti” on the arena (which looks horrible) and on Bear Aware for us to read where bears have been spotted the week before. Big deal!  Mary, “our very own Oprah” had Bear Aware phone me. I tried calling back – no answer. And what the hell has Bear Aware got to do with deer? You seem intent on making Fernie a tourist destination and don’t give a damn about long time residents. I tried phoning some council members with no answer. The only one I got to talk to was Mr. McSkimming, who at least was sympathetic to my problem. I know that I’m not the only one with this problem. So instead of working on getting your picture in the paper or on T.V, perhaps you can get something going on this situation.
