Letters to the Editor 06/12/2013

To the Editor:

We have a serious deer problem.

I live in Tollgate, just outside of Sisters. I am a fan of deer, but only in their natural environment - the wild. There is absolutely no reason I should have semi-tamed deer every day in my backyard when I live in a developed area.

The issue is when they begin to have their fawns. I have deer charging my two very large dogs on a daily basis. My dogs are behind a fence and the deer run alongside the entire fence, taunting them, and literally charge the fence.

My dogs are merely doing their duty. Some might say the deer are merely protecting their young. The problem is that they are choosing to birth their young and live in a developed area as semi-domesticated animals.

STOP FEEDING THE DEER.

They are wild animals and we are teaching them to live in our space, eat our gardens, and taunt our animals. They do not belong in my backyard; they belong in the wild.

Hallie M. Caron

To the Editor:

I want to give thanks to all who made even the slightest contribution toward my trip to New York City. I have never really been far outside of Oregon, let alone the other side of the country! And to be able to go there on account of my artwork seemed unlikely to ever happen to a small-town girl

like me.

And it was no cake-walk getting there. In all honesty, I didn't think it would be possible. But with a bit of hard work and the compassion of our wonderful community, I was able to go on such a grand adventure. It was truly an honorable experience, and I had the time of my life!

I am truly grateful for all the moral and financial support that was generously donated toward all this, and I am proud to live in a place where people care so much about one and other. Again, thank you all, so much, for granting me such a wonderful opportunity!

Meganne Englich-Mills

Re HM Caron, letter to the editor. Am I the only person to notice the irony? I agree that, at times, we shouldn't feed the wildlife, but, weren't they here first? Amazing how many people move to this area, plant lawns & gardens, erect structures and then complain about wildlife in "their" backyard.
