Re: “Chapel Hill mulling the culling of deer

"Speciesist status quo..." hilarious, our ecosystems are totally out of balance due entirely to human intervention. Naturally there are predators that would thin out deer herds, ie wolves, mountain lions, coyotes, etc. However over the past 200 years we have eliminated all of the apex predators because we were afraid of becoming meals ourselves. Now because of that fear we have no major predators and an explosion of deer who now have nothing but automobiles to fear. Whether we cull them or not nature will work itself out, eventually they will eat all of the available food and we will start seeing more and more sick and diseased deer. They unlike us cannot import more food or go to the doctor when an illness strikes their herd. Either way, since there is an overpopulation there will eventually be an equivalent die off as nature works to reset itself. Since we are the reason this happened we should step up and do something to fix it on our own before we start finding dead and sickly deer dropping dead in our front yards. Killing them while they are still healthy and using the meat to help people who are in need seems like a benefit for everyone...
