Sun heartless about deer rescue

December 22, 2010

The Sun's editorial on the rescue of a deer from the Patapsco River was so one-sided and closed-minded, I couldn't believe it ("Oh, deer!" Dec. 21). Whatever happened to compassion for living creatures?

Instead, The Sun upheld the fines given to the two men who decided to rescue a deer stuck in the ice — unlike the people whose job it was to do this.

I feel the Department of Natural Resources could have made more of an effort, particularly seeing how a pair of deer were rescued in Minnesota. In one case, the helicopter flow-directed the animals to shore, and in the other, a pair of Good Samaritans assisted.
