WAMC Vassar Deer Cull Draws Fire (2010-01-13)
WAMC, public broadcasting station, covered Vassar deer cull today. Marcy Schwartz and Doreen Tignanelli spoke against the kill. Vassar spokesperson Kosmacher says public did attend meetings, committee included members of the general public, and studies indicate kill was the way to go. NYSDEC spokesperson Wendy Rose...nbach says Vassar complied with all requirements and Vassar did hold a series of meetings. That is contrary to what NYSDEC Deer Biologist Kevin Clarke told me which was that Vassar said they made some effort to contact the public but "it wasn't the normal process that we usually advise them to go through which is a series of public meetings" and he said "I always recommend that".
