Letter: Figuring out the real number of deer

    To the Editor, In your issue published on Oct. 2, Taffy Williams protested “the madness of a deer cull.” She wrote that the number of deer “could be and is most likely a small population of no more than 20 to 30 deer roaming through Mamaroneck and Rye.” While her credentials as a […]

Letter: Oh deer, we’ve got a real problem

Emily Hurd, a Democratic candidate for City Council, suggested that if […]
