Minneapolis Water Works Deer

Sent to the Times Herald Record

3/5/04

In his response to my letter regarding the Minneapolis Water Works deer slaughter that was mentioned in the Record, Mr. Wayne Pulver states that the notion of a doe protecting her fawns is "an attempt at pure fictional sensationalism." (Letter not credible 3/5)

The report of the doe protecting her fawns came from an eyewitness to the slaughter, not from the imagination of this anti-hunter.

Mr. Wayne also states that in his rebuttal that "A deer herd of 70 animals on 78 acres of property could not possibly be slaughtered." Sadly, when a fenced in population of deer is driven toward the corners of the property where they have no means of escape, the resulting carnage can very accurately be described as a slaughter.

Hunters and their apologists can try to manipulate the story to serve their myopic viewpoints, but they cannot evade the truth - hunting is a barbaric endeavor that has no place in an ethical, modern society.
