How do you know that two people shot all those deer? Because only two people are in the picture? How do you know that the area didn't need to be thinned? How do you know that the meat will only be eaten by those two? Maybe that have a large family? Maybe it get's donated to the hungry? The options are unlimited as to the story that we don't have. But who knows maybe it is wastfull and all that meat just rotted away.
PA and Jersey ought to call that 16 car accidents avoided. I wonder if PETA has ever sent flowers to a funeral of anyone killed in a car vs. deer collision. Besides the deer, of course.
Deer need to be managed. At the turn of the 19th to the 20th century, they were at about 10 percent of the population they are now, in many areas. Thanks to hunting and especially hunters, there are enough now to make a harvest like that possible.
Great job keeping them out of the roads and cornfields!
