The residents of the community who are in favour of destroying deer are barbarians, and as adequately explained in the Oxford dictionary, barbarians belong in the category of primitive, coarse and uncivilized people. It is my fervent hope that humility, common sense and decency will prevail.It is time for the board of trustees to step back, and stop their violent plan before it goes any further. This plan to trap the deer and drive steel bolts into their brains is sadistic barbarity. Veterinarians agree it is a particularly cruel method. How can anyone with a heart commit this atrocity? This board does NOT represent the majority of residents who want a humane solution as witnessed by over 10,000 signatures on the petition. Stop this proposed plan it's the wrong way to go. It casts an ugly dark cloud over our beautiful and peaceful East End and the good people who live here.
