Oh, Deer

Ladies and Gentlemen, your tax dollars at work:

According to an AP story, the National Park Service needs to thin the elk herd in Rocky Mountain National Park. Officials estimate that it will cost $18 million to accomplish this.

The New Editor has other, more rational ideas.

Have they ever heard of hunters? They seem to work pretty well in Louisiana. They need some here in Maryland too. I've never seen deer so close to cities before. We regularly have deer hit by cars on the beltway. I guess they are going into town to protest, LOL!

I have hunted elk. It cost about $5000 per animal. So why can't the government make a profit off this venture. Or pick up some of the Cajuns displaced by the huricanes and let them lose for a week in the park. Their will be very little wild life left.
