Deer contraceptive fails in Jersey test
Sunday, September 18, 2005

The two dozen white-spotted fawns prancing around Princeton Township a few months ago were a signal something was wrong.

Their mothers were among 52 female deer injected last year with the birth control vaccine SpayVac, a drug expected to one day help manage wildlife populations.

But the fawns in Mercer County and another group in Ohio whose mothers also had been inoculated have put SpayVac on the shelf for good.

I was talking to Shawnm's buddy yesterday who hunted Dukes... before the hunt they were told NOT to shoot the orange collared deer because they were treated with contraception.

He said all of them had fawns when he saw them.

Enough of this contraception crap!!! Let hunters hunt the deer and use the money they are waisting on these contraception projects to pay for the butchering for the feed the hungry group!!!! Why waiste all this money, time and a great food supply?!

Guess the bucks aren't big on safe sex. Maybe those that support contraceptive use will bring a stock of condoms into the woods with them and apply the condoms to mating bucks.
