Officers on job

I believe there are at least two conservation officers stationed in Vernon who's job is to enforce provincial wildlife laws.

I would like to respond to the comments of Coun. Catherine Lord in a recent edition of The Morning Star and her statement about how the province has done away with enforcement of fish and wildlife laws.

I believe there are at least two conservation officers stationed in Vernon who’s job is to enforce provincial wildlife laws.

Coun. Catherine Lord’s lack of knowledge in this area clearly indicates she is not capable of dealing with wildlife issues or making laws in regard to them.

The bow hunting she refers to may be an effective way to control wildlife populations in areas like orchards with residential areas nearby.

Bow hunting being a short ranged affair is safer than firearms in this instance.

Please let the conservation officers decide if further action is required.
