Reward urged for Comox deer killer(s)

Dear editor,

A cowardly individual in Comox has decided to eliminate our deer population.

Dear editor,

A cowardly individual in Comox has decided to eliminate our deer population.

This person must be held accountable, as this is the third animal slaughtered by an arrow in one week.

Was the weapon used a crossbow? Is it legal to walk our streets and kill animals with it? If this is illegal, then where is the RCMP? They apparently are not interested, cannot be bothered, it’s just a deer.

I believe animals are equal in importance to humans. If we were to eliminate wildlife and nature, what type of existence would we have? I suspect one very dull and devoid of respect for others.

I am calling for a full RCMP investigation and for the Town of Comox to place a reward of $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction for this appalling act. It must be done.

Gord Weber,

Comox
