This is the typical short-term thinking involved in animal-killing as a "solution:" Iowa City hired "White Buffalo Inc., a Connecticut-based wildlife management company, in 1999, 2000 and 2001," reports the Iowa City Press-Citizen. "During that time, sharpshooters reduced the urban deer population from 556 in 1999 to 201 in 2002." The article goes on to observe that "because the city opted not to sharpshoot last year, the deer population nearly tripled to 565." So massive deer kills is a "solution" that has to be reapplied every single year until...? Meanwhile, remember, there's no time to investigate ways to make contraception work (no mention whatsoever in the article)... after all, that's much too inefficient!
