I can't believe that instead of letting hunters kill and eat the deer, Maryland has a plan to inject deer with a sterilizing agent. They will have to pay to catch the deer, inject the deer and tag the deer as sterilized for around $1000 each.

...and it gets better. The reason they are tagging them is because once injected they will NOT be safe to eat.

So, instead of making money off the deer population in this very tough economy, by allowing the hunters to go after the deer (if they don't charge a fee per deer killed by a hunter, they could), they will instead use taxpayers money for this crazy scheme.

Why would they do this? I guess some people will get jobs, but this is a real bad idea, in my opinion.
