Default Government LOL for the day

http://www.petoskeynews.com/news/fea...,3967579.story

HARBOR SPRINGS — City manager Tom Richards has found a way to help manage the deer population at the Harbor Springs Deer Park: to treat the deer with contraceptives — administered by dart.

Richards has been working with the Humane Society of the United States for a way to control the deer population in a humane way. The deer park drew controversy in late 2011, when the city of Harbor Springs had to thin herd of deer from 19 to five in the municipal park, which is less than an acre.


Previously, the city thinned the deer herd using a pistol and donated the meat to Manna Food Project.

In talking with a local veterinarian and experts from the humane society, Richards arranged to have the does in the herd given long-lasting contraceptives. The contraceptives will be administered by a dart gun, and will last 2-3 years.

"This way, we can manage the population instead of having to deal with overpopulation," he said.



Manna is a local food bank serving alot of people.

I know someone who decreased the deer population with an F350 instead of a Dart.

Returning bottles today at Glens in Boyne Shitty during lunch, I had to listen to a sob story about how what I assume was Grandma, having her daughter mad at her because Gma had to file for child support against her and baby daddy because the state had taken her food stamps away from her...........as she returned roughly $40 worth of busch light cans reeking of pot. I was inspired.

But really there is no humor, just stupid politics because some down-staters had the deer park when they were kids, so they want it to be around for their kids. never mind that in 10 minutes in either direction you can find wilderness.

if there was some way to involved the recipients of the free food in it's killing and preparatioin there may be a little more appreciation for it.

to paraphrase the gubernment postings in many parks: please don't feed the animals as they can become dependent on your handouts and forget how to forage for themselves.

So while the vaccine might cost as little as $10 a shot, the injection of the deer typically costs $500 to $1000 per shot.

That mad me chuckle a bit.


I think they should look into humanly euthanizing all the things that could cause harm to the deer naturally too. Like mountain lions and cougars. We wouldn't want them to suffer a gruesome death at the hands of those predators either.
