I am very aware of the problem and I absolutely agree that part of it is the threat to native vegetation. I have also been impacted as a gardener.
If you see comments on some of the news stories, you’ll see that some people are very unsympathetic. Either they don’t want to interfere with the deer because they are beautiful or they just don’t want to spend money. And unfortunately, many people who care about wild animals don’t have the same regard for the plants.
