Deer are a natural part of ML

Letters to the Editor

In response to the editorial of James Eik, concerning the multitude of deer in Medical Lake:

Yes they eat my flowers, they eat my roses, especially the prized yellow ones, and they like my tulips a lot.

But I like to see them laying down in my back yard, I like to watch them walking so stately through town, stopping at the crosswalks, waiting for the cars to pass.

I do not feed them, and I have learned to plant daffodils instead of tulips, I do not feed the birds either, because the deer really like bird seed, no matter where it hangs.

How fortunate we are to have such beautiful wild animals in our back yards. And let us not forget whose land we are continuing to build and encroach upon?
