Episode 111: Deer? Oh, dear…

Be it the Royal Botanical Gardens in Ontario, provincial parks in Alberta or Oak Bay in British Columbia, people are killing deer. It’s not for sustenance; it’s for an alleged overpopulation. Defender Radio this week is focused on the subject of deer culls and coexistence strategies, with interviews from Liz White of Animal Alliance of Canada, Rick Kubian of Parks Canada and Sara Dubois from the BC SPCA.

For an examination of why large-scale fencing may not be ideal (as suggested in the Rick Kubian interview), please check out this article by Ben Gadd.
