Battling Ticks – We Can’t Eat Mice

Staten Island is at it again. This time they are targeting mice as a means of mitigating the tick problem – instead of targeting deer.

Recall that Staten Island contracted with Cornell University to undertake a deer vasectomy program that is believed to stop or reduce the breeding and production of deer by making sure some of the male deer are unable to mate with a female deer in heat. There’s a couple of problems with this dog and pony show. One problem is that one buck, that has not been snipped and clipped, will probably die trying to breed all the female deer that come into heat. The second problem is that when a doe deer goes into estrus (heat) she will remain that way until bred. Somewhere alone the lines in the misguided, perverse society we are subjected to, I read something about deer reproductive rights.

But I digress!

Now, some say due to an overblown deer population on the island, the threat of disease from ticks is growing as well. But this time, instead of going after the deer to curb the diseases, New York will spend a gob of money each year for 3 years to go after mice – the real culprits that spread the deer tick responsible for Lyme disease.

Deer meat tastes far better than mouse meat. Because we live in a post normal world, where everything is upside-down, our sick culture cannot see the benefits of killing the deer to eat, which in turn would help to mitigate the tick problem AND at the same time, seriously reduce the number of nasty, disease-carrying mice. Better health, better food.

But no!


Cornell University to Kill Deer by a Continual Rut

Some people are fed up with the utter nonsense that flows from every contaminated corner of our society, including universities of higher brain manipulation and indoctrination. Cornell University has to be among the leaders.

In 2014, due to the belief by Cornell and nearby Cayuga Heights, N.Y. that deer possess “reproductive health is a cervine right,” female deer were given tubal ligations believing this would stop the growth of the deer population. The result: does remained in estrous continually which attracted every male deer for miles causing the already dense population of deer to increase due to bucks seeking pleasure from the wafting essence of  “doe-in-heat.”

Well, the university is at it again. An article carried, willingly, by the New York Times, says that Cornell has undertaken a program on Staten Island to reduce the overgrown population of deer. This time, they are spending $3.3 million to give all the male deer a vasectomy. Yup, you read that right.

Now consider. When a doe deer (the female species) goes into “heat” or estrous, they essentially will remain in that state until conception is completed. I might be going out on a limb here to say that I have my doubts that the male deer (bucks) have cognitive abilities to realize they have had a vasectomy and thus they will run themselves ragged (to death) attempting to satisfy the estrous does.

Understanding the habits of male deer during the rut, one can only imagine the number of car collisions caused by bucks gone wild, a condition Cornell is contracted to help cure.

One also has to wonder to what extent a buck will go fulfilling his “duty” to mate with every “in heat” doe he whiffs. In Maine, where winters are far harsher than on Staten Island, at times the bucks will exhaust themselves and starve themselves as essentially 100% of their time is spent involved in “getting some.” With doe deer in continual estrous, will a buck deer kill himself in the attempt?

I would suppose, however, that if the community of Staten Island is also of the general impression that “reproductive health is a cervine right,” then they deserve the outcome of their perverse and utterly foolish and expensive program.

It will undoubtedly result in buck deer having an erection that lasts for more than 4 hours, and so, who are they going to call? If a man walking around with an erection for more than 4 hours is worthy of a phone call to the doctor, and if deer have a “cervine right” to reproductive health, is this not a clear case of animal abuse?

In addition, we know, but are not deterred, that multiple sex partners results in the spread of sexually transmitted diseases. With doe deer in a perpetual horny stage and buck deer, not unlike the male human species, eager to please, surely there will be an exponential explosion of multiple sex partners among the deer. Is there a risk of the spread of sexually transmitted diseases among the deer, or other health risks? With the deer, having no say in their “right” to reproductive health, isn’t this another clear example of animal abuse?

There is no end to this idiocy!


Urban Wildlife Management

Staten Island, New York covers about 102 square miles, has a human population of just under half a million and nearly 800 whitetail deer. It’s my guess that people on Staten Island are perceiving deer as a nuisance because they are killing the deer and leaving them to rot, or in some cases cutting off heads for the antlers.


Out on Long Island, more deer troubles (too many deer?). Dead deer are being found on on the railroad tracks in East Quogue. It’s described as a “mystery.” With an estimated deer population in 2013 of between 25,000 and 35,000 deer, along with a failed effort to reduce the deer herd in this same area of eastern Long Island by up to 3,000, is it really honest to label as a mystery that deer are being killed on the railroad tracks?
