Killing a wounded deer that will likely die a horrible death during the winter makes one a “cruel bastard.”
But it’s okay if you let your dogs maim the deer– which means the keepers– “the cruel bastards”– have to kill the ones the dogs wounded.
Makes perfect sense to me!
This problem could be solved if the policy was that all dogs on the property were required to either be on a leash or under control.
NB: Stags are male red deer. Fallow deer and roe deer males are called bucks. This animal rights person doesn’t even know the proper nomenclature.
