54 Whitetail Deer Abortions Performed In Michigan.

That’s right deer abortions.

The City of Ann Arbor’s contractor, White Buffalo, successfully sterilized 54 female deer from Jan. 22 through Jan. 29. Deer sterilization activities took place in select neighborhoods in Wards 1 and 2 where lethal removal of deer could not occur, but darting and surgical sterilization of deer could take place per a special research permit obtained from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. White Buffalo reported zero mortalities or injuries as a result of sterilization activities.

The “sterilization” process is performed by surgically removing the ovaries of female deer.

Besides being the dumbest form of conservation ever conceived, this experimental process was not cheap. It was funded by taxpayer dollars (the efforts reportedly cost more than $150,000) and the program was signed off on by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Now being that this is January, and well after the whitetail rut, at least 90{5c20afc010e65415aecac9ea1262ea64a0924a29c29fc9ad7cafd2eeb769a435} of those does were pregnant when their ovaries were removed. Good job Michigan the first state to get government funding for deer abortions.

Citizens of Ann Arbor were complaining about overpopulation and increases in car accidents. Can’t even imagine what will happen come November when the bucks are rutting and no does to breed.

There is no science behind “deer sterilization” and it has been proven ineffective at managing deer populations.
