Cull the deer herds

 

In response to the Jan. 5 letter on the deer glut, the solution is simple. Contact the Sierra Club, Wilderness Alliance, U.S. Fish and Wildlife, and yes, Idaho Fish and Game (IDFG), and have them relocate or reintroduce a few of the “indigenous” apex predators that have already so successfully culled the wilderness elk and deer herds in beautiful North Idaho.

It will certainly be the most humane thing to do and it will provide for a more balanced ecosystem and perpetuation of the wolf species. Oh yes, please don’t worry about the triplet fawns that were mentioned, the Canadian grays make great midwives. You should see their bedside manner during the spring calving season.
