Oh, deer .... Bambi in peril.

At an estimated 1.5 million, the deer population of Britain is at it's highest since the last ice age, and a cull of nearly half is being called for, in order to protect other wild creatures, ancient woodlands and natural habitat.

But on the up side, Bambi is tastier than Black Beauty.

Yeah, but a huge glut on the market (of a perishable item) might drive the price down, even temporarily?

Bring back the wolves is what I say. Natural predators doing what comes naturally.

Yeah, but wolves are opportunistic hunters... They might just as easily attack more compliant farm animals than wily deer?

What about raising the bag limit slightly and lowering the price of hunting licenses? Let the hunters pay for the privilege to help solve the problem?

Bambi is not one of the deer in the UK so Bambi is still safe

Bambi was a roe deer. Roe deer live in the United Kingdom.

Perhaps you're best sticking to marsupials, eh?

They should however cull a large number of these animals as they are turning into a total pest

Re: Oh, deer .... Bambi in peril.

I took my daughter to see the film Bambi when she was 4 years old. When the scene where Bambi's mother was killed was shown, I turned to look at her, and silent tears were slowy running down her cheeks. Neither of us have ever forgotten the experience.

That's what happens when you mix up the tubes of superglue and lube.

(I didn't say that. Somebody must have hacked my account.)
