I have noticed a big difference both in my yard and in the deer kill along Bryn Mawr Ave.

I am appreciative of the culling because it makes Bryn Mawr Ave safer. My wife hit a deer driving near St Aloysius in August 2011. Fortunately, no one was hurt (just the car damaged) but it could have resulted in a serious injury to my wife and others.

We still have our small "herd" of 7 or 8 deer roaming through our area.
