Deer Hunting Editorial Impinges on Rights of Non-hunters

Sent: Sat, 20 Dec 2003
To: <letters@thejournalnews.com  

Your editorial on deer hunting demonstrates how killing wildlife, the sport of less than five per cent of the population, impinges upon the rights and safety of the other 95 per cent. Pockets of excessive deer population that damage farm crops and residential property and cause automobile accidents that result in higher collision insurance for all of us, are the result of successful "scientific game management" designed to meet hunters' demands for more animals to kill.

Wild animal populations did not get so out of balance before they were managed for the benefit of hunters.

The principle of the greatest good for the greatest number seems to have been brushed aside in deference to the demands from hunters for more animals to kill.
