Is the poll right? Really, that many want a deer cull??

Ucluelet – I am stunned to see that the online poll has >60% in favor of a deer cull. I thought that it was cougars that people are afraid of. What has changed in Ucluelet is that there are now cougars in town, the deer have always been here. My perception is that recently there are fewer deer. Get a grip, if it is not deer that people are afraid of but cougars then kill the cougars. It is quite possible that culling the deer will have the very opposite of the intended effect and simply result in hungrier cougars.
