I live in Mays Chapel and in the past few weeks I have seen so many deer, dead and alive, in the road. What is being done about the overpopulation? And what is the time frame for picking up the carcasses? Some of them have been left along Padonia Road for at least three days.
Not only did we have a fatality right around the corner, during daylight hours, caused by a deer striking a car, but on my way to work this morning, I am still traumatized by what I saw.
On Padonia Road, heading away from York Road, a public school bus was stopped because it had struck a deer. It's head, with large antlers was flailing around as it was trying to get up.
I have never seen the so many deer in the almost 10 years that I have lived in this area. Are they planning on doing some kind of culling of them? I don't know if there were any students on the bus or not, but I certainly would not want to see a whole bus load of students get hurt because of this.
In addition, this is a primarily elder neighborhood, and I fear for my neighbors who do not have the ability to react quickly to a deer running across the road.
