No obligation

A defense of the rights of people.

These creatures are not – as some animal lovers have suggested in interviews with this newspaper – “the weakest members of any society.” It’s not “genocide” to cull the herds, there’s no “obligation to feed them.” They are strong, independent members of their own society – but that’s not our human society. Deer are animals – can’t people get that?

There’s an argument that we have invaded their territory. Well, of course we have. We’ve been doing that ever since the Loyalists landed in the forested area that has since become Canada’s oldest incorporated city – the City of Saint John and its suburbs. That’s an essential part of the evolution of all societies – ours and theirs.
