Dead Deer, Dan Vrakas, and a Solution

Apparently, DNR will stop paying for pickups of road-kill deer. (That's so they can piss away $640K buying a bunch of weeds and grass.)

Anyhoo, Dan Vrakas is not happy about that.

Waukesha County ranks second behind Dane County in the number of deer removed each year at public expense.

In 2008, 1,325 deer have been removed from Waukesha County roads, according to the DNR. In Washington County, the tally is 615 deer, in Ozaukee County, 345, and Milwaukee County, 336.

"We think it's a poor decision, and we hope that they will reconsider it," said Allison Bussler, chief of staff for Waukesha County Executive Dan Vrakas.

Maybe Mr. Vrakas should consider WHY there are so many roadkill deer in Waukesha County.

Hint: People cannot SHOOT the damn pests in most of the eastern half of the county.

All Dan has to do is transfer the pickup costs to the municipalities to see a change of heart (except in Elm Grove, of course.)
