Since 1997, when Darien’s First Selectman appointed the Darien Deer Management Committee with Kent Haydock as chair, the town has pursued deer “as Public Enemy Number 1,” Priscilla Feral said, president of the Darien-based Friends of Animals.
When, oh when will humans stop arrogating to themselves the excuse to kill animals on the grounds that we have a ‘right’ or a ‘need’ to ‘manage’ their populations?
Humans have massively overpopulated the planet, far beyond the Earth’s capacity to sustain our resource usage. Let’s manage the human population, please. Leave sentient nonhumans alone.
