Your website is wonderful. 

I wanted to let you know about an exciting non lethal project that is being conducted in Virginia first ever permit there to spay deer instead of killing them.

Deer Management - Spaying

The photo above was taken at a field hospital set up in the Fairfax City police station. A tranquilized doe is awaiting spay surgery which takes about 30 minutes after which she's ear tagged and returned to where she was captured. A reversal drug is administered and she is  freed--but will never become pregnant again. 

Deer Spay has been endorsed by the Humane Society of the U.S., the A.S.P.C.A., the Animal Welfare Institute, the Humane Society of Fairfax County, Maryland Wildlife Rescue, Inc.,  Blue Ridge Wildlife, and Pets LTD.

Thank you
