Hey, did you hear about the deer that got away?

Nothing about double counting or $36 million, but we do get to read about this.

I wonder how much the car was speeding over the 35 MPH limit when it hit the deer ?

Trib reporter Matt Santoni can cover a car hitting a deer, but the issue of what are very largely exposed bogus district budget numbers totally escapes his awareness or attention.

With the weather being so lovely, I slept with the windows open last night. But at 2.30, I was woken up by the sound of a coyote yipping, a first for me.

I was once in favor of a deer cull, but this has made me come around to this blog's stance. There is no need for a costly cull as it would appear that nature will work out the overpopulation on its own. There have been many studies on coyote predation of whitetail fawns, and the inevitable resulting population decrease. So maybe in addition to deer droppings, I'll be cleaning up a few fawn carcasses.

Having said that, when the inevitable Pomeranian is attacked by a coyote, I don't want to hear that the municipality has a duty to cull the coyotes. Our inability to act on controlling the deer population means that we're on the cusp of a new normal.

Besides coyotes, nature is already working out the deer population. Last year's aerial survey count was 342. This year's count is 196. Being a Mt. Lebanon grad, I had to resort to an online percentage calculator. The percent of decrease from 342 to 196 is 42.69005847953216 % Shhh. Kristen doesn't want this to come out, so let's just keep this between the two of us, 8:52 AM. Just curious, 8:52 AM, do you mind telling Lebo Citizens readers which elementary school you live near?
