It’s disturbing to think that any of our River Forest village leaders would support anything as illogical as deer culling. This would not stop deer from wandering out of the woods in the future. It’s barbaric.

Look around, have you actually seen any deer lately outside the woods?

To those who have contracted Lyme disease, it’s awful. But there is no proof it came from deer wandering from our local woods. Shooting random deer addresses that problem? I think not.

There are more evolved and compassionate ways to handle this situation.

The Illinois state animal is the white tailed deer. Isn’t it protected?

It would be good to see the anger over a minor thing like deer droppings focused on littering, as littering has far worse consequences.
