Death toll as of January 4, 2016

101 deer
Deer "Harvest" Information as of January 4, 2016

(saved in Google Docs)

Archery season ends on January 23, 2016. Keith McGill has placed the sharpshooting vote on the January 12, 2016 agenda. Keith has figured out that he has more power than one or even two commissioners combined. It will take a vote from three commissioners to change the set agenda.

The commissioners will be voting, based on the numbers collected NINETEEN days before the archery season is over.

Sad, sickening, disgusting.

Wasn't the original goal up to 150? How many do they plan to kill with sharpshooting? Is the goal to obliterate every single living deer that is seen on an ongoing basis?

Initially, Coleen Vuono was hoping for 100 deer killed via archery and 150 deer killed by "sharpshooting." We were told at the August 15 and 17 meetings that there was never a goal for 100 deer to be killed by archery.

I really loathe this place.

100 deer total is less than the actual number but higher than I expected them to report. Plus, don't we have several weeks of archery ahead of us? 100 deer by this point taken from Mt. Lebanon puts a huge dent in our deer population.

The illustrious few want no deer population, hence the need for ongoing killing.

Certainly killing more doe than bucks will help them achieve their goal.

I can't stand these people. Cruel, barbaric a$$holes.

agree with the first comment on the posting..
after listening to the Michlena from Longuevue,,, I wanted to ring her neck..
she speaks like she is part of the Hitler Death Camp...
Mr McLean said last night that I canvased his ward and most of the people home were in favor of the cull.. I wonder when he came,, I home most of the time.. and none of my neighbors have seen him.. but maybe he only was in Mission Hills.. the homes with the huge yards and are too expensive to fence... just have the taxpayers pay for the Township to hire private hunters to take care of the nuisance..Im totally sick of all the Lebo Administration,, esp the newby Mr McGill...I know it's politically incorrect but one of the reasons Lebo's schools are so good is the foreign kids.. and their parents don't care about killing animals..so regardless of our slaughter they will still come to live here.. but most young families will be selecting another school or community to live..

I recall there was a meeting with the realtors a while back. Not sure what that was all about.

Possibly they don't care if most young families leave Mt. Lebanon.

Is it possible they wish to have a select breed living in Mt. Lebanon? Those who are affluent, pro kill, who hate wildlife and prefer the lives of plants over living, breathing, innocent animals? Those who don't care about the safety of other residents?

I hate to think of wounded, dying deer running into traffic or in front of children who are going to or from school, or just enjoying being outdoors.

How is this mission to kill all deer as quickly as possible any different from the real problems on our streets: drivers who are self centered, indifferent, & high speed? They won't even count the deer. They need to slow down.

Ann Arbor residents are suing to stop the "urban assault" there.

Reading that Ann Arbor complaint could make the court go crazy. TMI. Not sure how much meat is on the bones of the complaint.

Maybe the sane Lebo residents need to file a lawsuit.

The lawsuit appears to have valid complaints. The outcome will be interesting And i hope the plaintiffs win.

What is the obsession of killing the poor deer?

Why is it the most important issue?

Again...barbaric, cruel, disgusting.

Constitutional violations will be a tough sell to a federal court. I think it will get dismissed on summary judgment.

Ditto on the crazy drivers in ML. I was driving up Mayfair yesterday morning when a female in a light blue minivan came barreling down the street, not paying attention, trying to remove an orange tag from her review mirror, and almost caused a head on collision. There were parked cars on my side and no where to pull over. She didn't even slow down!!! I had to stop and pray she didn't hit me!!!!

10:15, you should have yielded to the other driver because there were parked cars on your side of the street:
PA Title 75 § 3301. Driving on right side of roadway.
(a) General rule.--Upon all roadways of sufficient width, a vehicle shall be driven upon the right half of the roadway except as follows:
2) When an obstruction exists making it necessary to drive to the left of the center of the roadway, provided the driver yields the right-of-way to all vehicles traveling in the proper direction upon the unobstructed portion of the roadway within such distance as to constitute a hazard.

You should pray you did not get a citation for your illegal unsafe driving.

10:15--you convinced me. Also, just be glad that an antlered buck did not crash though your front window and leave fur all over the interior of your car.

11:25: I WAS on my side of the road. The minivan crested the small hill just below Virginia Way. The opposite driver was on the left side of the road, MY side of the road. AND I stopped!!! The other driver wasn't looking at the road. She was looking to her right. And she never slowed down. I wasn't the one driving in an unsafe manner. So, there's need to be snarky!

From 4:38: correction: There is no need to be snarky.
