Dear Editor:

Regarding Mr. Brad Malfairs letter appearing in your November 1st edition: as eloquent as Mr. Malfairs anti-wildlife presentation is, it aims to promote the non- sporting killing of an indigenous species.

In his last paragraph, he states that there exists no viable option to ridding the community of deer.

This sounds to me very much like the narrow-minded thinking of the type that gave us residential schools, where what was historically the norm needed to be changed to fit an unnatural and inhumane paradigm.

Simply stated, the deer in the valley were here first, along with everything else natural and splendid which draws people here. Do we blast away mountains to improve the view?

My solution to those who find the natural elements so annoying is to sell and move on with your profits to someplace with more traffic, high-rises and shopping malls.
