Oppose Deer Culls
Newtown's Tick Borne Disease Action Committee has been charged with researching tick borne disease to come up with a plan for how to reduce risk in Newtown. This committee is close to finalizing their report, which may recommend lethal deer "management' options.
There is not a single scientific study that shows kiling deer can reduce tick borne disease for mainland communities. The Tick Borne Disease Action Committee has a responsibility to produce well-researched, proven methods for disease reduction, not recommendations that will appease a small but vocal special interest group clamoring for fewer deer. As educated, taxpaying citizens, we expect nothing less.
