Additional news has broken since my post yesterday. First there is word from Channel 5 that a lawsuit has now been filed to stop the deer hunt. I have attached a link to the article here. Additionally, those mentioned in my previous post continue to gain momentum in there efforts to overturn deer hunting in the city. The most recent update email contained over 100 email addresses and growing.
Kathy states in her latest email, "I want to thank everyone for your overwhelming response and feedback to my email regarding Ft. Thomas' deer management program."
I have found the same to be true. While there are some that I have spoken with that could care less one way or the other - the majority that I have spoken with think this is the most ridiculous idea our city council could have proposed.
Lastly, according to Channel 12 there have been two reported deer killings since the hunt began. The one thing that stuck out to me in the article is the fact that the city administrator is trying to compile a list of those allowing deer hunting on their premises. This underscores the hasty nature of which this ordinance was passed. These are the types of things that should have been handled prior to the beginning of the hunt. I would love to hear from anyone who has been contacted by the city to determine whether they are allowing hunting on their property.
