Deer fence the solution

For the several years that I lived by Campbell Mountain, nothing has ever been done about the deer in the area of the city. There are no road signs indicating that they are in the area.

The mayor and council are too busy with the issues: prison, bicycle lane, the pool, etc. No one cares about safety concerning the public interest.

The provincial government and ICBC spent millions of dollars on deer fences from Osoyoos to Kelowna on Highway 97 to prevent deer mishaps on public roads. The problem with this mayor and council is they do not want to address these concerns, they’d rather discuss big spending on culling them (deer).

My say as a concerned citizen of Penticton, is to build a fence along Campbell Mountain to prevent the deer from coming down to the city. Display a sign of wild life on the road along Johnson Road and Upper Bench, as they have deer signs down Vancouver hill, to prevent any injury to residents, cyclists, tourists, etc. There is no need for a cull on the deer population.
