If people can't be sympathetic about our deer and wolf being culled, maybe they could question why, in these financially hard times, is our government spending millions on a wolf cull and $6 million culling deer.
Parks Canada would, you’s think, be protectors of our wildlife. It is using special helicopters and pilots who can fly at night (and doing this) at a time when the public is suffering financially and are paying the penalty for carbon emissions.
If you care at all for the deer, what about those (shooters) who don't get a clean shot and (leave deers) wounded and suffering for the rest of their short life.
When I was hanging off a rock wall for 12 hours after a climbing accident, there were no helicopters were available that could fly at night, so the rescue took additional four hours. The Search and Rescue specialists, who I am deeply grateful for, performed an incredibly long and challenging rescue.
