Deer shouldn’t be culled for human’s sake

It is a matter of having a little respect and harmony for nature and recognizing thatother species have the right to life

I’m sorry Rhonda Wentzel is so offend over the sight of a deer but that does not mean that her home province of Nova Scotia is in the right to cull them for human’s sake.  And it has nothing to do with people like me being Bambi lovers. I am opposed to hunting for hunting’s sake. Whether it is deer, cougars, feral rabbits, or grizzly bears, the only legitimate reason to hunt in my world is to eat what you hunt.

It is a matter of having a little respect and harmony for nature and recognizing thatother species have the right to life and the right to not be relocated or uprooted, as it is called when done to humans.  If anyone went around saying there are too many blacks, or too many whites, or orientals, or brown people most reasonable people would call a spade a spade and tell them to their face they are racist bigots.

We do not have the right to decide there are too many of deer or cougars or too many rabbits just because some people are offended by the sight of them.

What is the correct number of deer? Who gave us the right to arbitrarily make that decision of other species?
