Balto. Co. approved humane deer kills, not hunting

May 06, 2011

I was confused by your report that Baltimore County supposedly approved a "deer hunt bill" ("Deer hunts approved in Balto. County parks," May 3). That could not be further from the truth.

In fact, the bill was stricken of any and all language implying the approval of hunting and replaced it with the term "deer cooperator."

It is like comparing apples and oranges: Hunters can maim and wound deer, but a deer cooperator as defined in the bill is required to kill the animals instantly and humanely with a single shot through the brain.
