Have a heart for the deer!

THE EDITOR, Sir:

So now the rabid, bloodthirsty hunters get to MURDER the poor white-tailed deer. Really? Invasive? Who is invasive? The deer? Are you kidding me!

Who is invasive is us! Us humans who use guns to inflict suffering and pain upon defenceless animals - deer, no less, those passive beautiful creatures?

I am so sick of this. Am I the only person who feels so sorry to read of this? The deer didn't ask to be brought here, to live among some of the most brutal, cruel bastards alive - Jamaicans!

Just seeing and reading the news of what we do to each other, much less a poor, dumb animal living in the wild and trying to exist, is tragic.

I have seen the frightened, panicked look in the eyes of a deer before. They know they are being hunted to be killed and try to run away, but run to where?

Instead of becoming a kinder, gentler society, here we are making announcements to slaughter these helpless animals.
