This afternoon, I saw a typical pedestrian standing at a corner, waiting for traffic to clear, turning her head back and forth to look. After I went by her, she trotted across the road on her four hooved legs. No road-kill venison in Riverside, Illinois tonight.


OMG - all the dumb deer have been killed off in Illinois and the remaining smart deer are surviving to reproduce themselves... Northern Wisconsin is doomed!!!

Hmmm...first they're killing off deer and then they let them reproduce themselves again. Where's the logic?

It's called culling. We have it in Richmond Park every year which causes an outcry in the local press.

Maintaining population equilibrium.
With urbanization, deer and similar animals have few natural predators to control population, so man has to fill that ecological niche.

The press in the Richmond area forget that the deer were protected there to provide "sport" for the King and his guests. In the "good old days" a peasant got a reward for killing a predator, but got executed for killing a deer with the bounds of the park.

Imagine one's doing that with humans. Then it wouldn't be ethical...

Some human populations practice birth-control to keep themselves at or slightly below the sustainment level. For others, Mother Nature appears to use war and famine to achieve that goal......

Whoever has been running that sort of
stuff over the last 10,000 years or so;
they have been making a poor job of it.

Well the fact is that the human population is growing at a faster rate than the planet can sustain.

Oh I don't know. The Bay Area Wildlife Park Inc seems to be doing a fair job under its CEO A. Korpela.

CA is supposed to grow to a population of 50 Million from about 40 million in the present day and the US is supposed to increase by 150 million people from about 315 million.
