Case 1. Staten Island, New York City
Deer swim across the Arthur Kill channel from New Jersey, start to reproduce, begin to be noticed.
In 2008 the deer population of Staten Island was estimated at just 24. Now it’s soared to around 2,000, according to the NYC Parks Department. Oct 12, 2018
Traffic accidents, vegetation destruction, black-legged (“deer”) ticks, and previously-absent Lyme disease follow.
The NYC government, with Mayor de Blasio known to be beholden to animal rights groups, refuses to use lethal methods recommended by wildlife experts. NYC spends millions of dollars on a highly questionable buck vasectomy program which at best would reduce the deer population slowly over time and seems to be failing to do so. Yes, White Buffalo (who else would dare to approach the tender parts of antler-bearing bucks?) is the contractor.
