HASTINGS-ON-HUDSON, N.Y. A suburban New York City village is considering controlling the rising deer population by darting them with a contraceptive.

Hastings-on-Hudson officials say that volunteers will begin gathering preliminary research for the birth control project early next year.

How difficult could that be? Well, look at the number of hunting licenses issued, and look at the number of deer taken.

That will give you an idea of how many dart-wielding government employees needed to dart one deer, assuming that the dart can be employed at fifty meters.

If the range is ten meters, then the probability of getting close is much smaller. Then you have to consider that if you can get close enough to dart one deer, it’s likely that that deer will get darted more than once. Deer that are more wary of people won’t get darted.

Then you need to retrieve the dart! Don’t want one of those falling into the wrong hands!

This is the perfect government solution, expensive, manpower intensive, ineffective compared to the old way, let citizens pay to shoot and eat them.

Hmm, does a one-shot injectable deer contraceptive exist?

Contraceptive Company: yes, this is a great idea and the taxpayer will pay full retail price for our products.

Globalists: eee ee eeee, another step towards nwo.

Deer: get away from me you freak.

People with common sense: oh @#$@#$@#, now our venison’s gonna be loaded up with #$%#% chemicals and make us sick. Let’s shoot those @#$#$^#$ darts into the Globalists.

Healthcare Industry: great, more human-caused disease for us to cure at full retail x 2.

Taxpayers: @#$^*%^.

Child Activists: So like yeah man, like, ya know.

I blame it all on these newer, lighter fuel-efficient cars. Used to be, you could hop in an old Buick or Olds with a 455 engine and hunt deer with impunity. Acceleration was good and they were wide enough to take out several deer at once.

There are groups that can be contracted to take care of the problem.

They come in at night, used low velocity silenced weapons, clean out the deer, clean up the mess, and can be gone before sunup.

None of the faint hearts, except the city fathers, will ever know they have been there.

They are used often in towns full of animal lovers and too many deer.

If they'd only ring my doorbell I'd tell them about an easier way.

It can. So can a crossbow. Feed the deer ornamental shrubbery, then eat the deer. What’s not to like about that?

Send that slut Sandra Fluke out into the woods to put condoms on them.
She’d enjoy that, I’m sure. ...As long as she didn’t have to pay for the condoms.

Yea it called a bullet...one shot and it not ever going to reproduce again

So we have a left vs right solution

The left solution= Expense government (and taxpayer) program that still leave the deer consuming land resources with no return

The right solution= People freely willing to do the job and a profit to government and taxpayer (on sale of deer tags) land resources saved, and provided health food to people

So who is really more "green"

LOL! I do believe I'd pay a couple months salary in exchange for the chance to watch that witch try and put a condom on a twelve-point buck.

We have animal rights wackos around here that live trap feral cats, spay/neuter, then release them to kill more songbirds. Lunacy.

If the economy keeps going the way it is, we won’t have to worry about controlling the deer population. Hunger will take care of that, just like it did in the great depression.
