Dear editor,

Oh, wow. Thank you for publishing the Have Your Say item Oct. 10.

My friends, co-workers and I have had such a great laugh.

What an excellent idea, to fence in all our wildlife. Let’s wrangle up all of the nature in the area, and take it out to a spot we’ve set aside so we don’t have to be inconvenienced by any of it.

Sure, it will take a bit of work but the benefits are obvious.

Or, better yet, and most likely more cost-effective, let’s just build a really tall electric fence around the Comox Valley so no deer or bears or cougars can get in. Doesn’t that make more sense?

But seriously folks, why have you hit four deer in the past seven years? I’ve lived here for 10 years and never hit anything. Could it have anything to do with your driving?

And as far as bears in your yard, try picking the apples. Then they’ll have nothing to “shop” for.

We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and part of that is the nature at our doorstep. That is the give-and-take of living in the Comox Valley.

If you’re not comfortable with it, consider moving to a bigger city where the wildlife has been pushed back and obliterated. I know it may be “out of the box” for you, but maybe it’s worth thinking about.

S. Austin,

Happy Valley
