Hamilton Deer and Toronto Feral Cats

Just a couple quick updates.

The meeting Tuesday night of the Hamilton Deer Committee was mostly concerned with tidying up how the Committee would function and issues that still need to be considered. There was brief discussion about the deer; when the Committee reconvenes in the fall, the deer will be discussed more in depth. Although the Committee will not be meeting for the remainder of the summer, please keep sending in letters and calling the City in support of progressive, non-lethal methods to deal with factors affecting Iroquoia Heights (since there are more complicated factors than simply the deer eating vegetation!).

Yesterday, Liz and I attended a meeting of the Toronto Feral Cat TNR Coalition (more on this to come). Both of us were very excited to see a number of groups working together to address Toronto's feral cat population. This progressive, cooperative initiative is quite unique. A big congratulations to Toronto Animal Services and all the groups involved for working to help the ferals!

Have a good weekend everyone!
