Rather Than Letting Nature Find Balance,“Wildlife Experts” Put Coyotes On Hit List

To the Editor:

The lunacy in Princeton shows no signs of letting up. First, to appease shrub-loving snobs, hundreds of thousands in tax money was squandered in a cruel and ill-advised deer eradication program that is now in its 13th year. Rather than allowing nature to find a balance, predators such as foxes and coyotes are now on the hit list as well. Without predators, guess what happens to the deer population? Did Princeton’s “wildlife experts” sleep through Biology 101? Is killing and sanitizing the ecosystem really the best that officials can come up with? Princeton can and must do better.
