BAMBI KILLS BABY
A deer bounced across the road in front of me as I was driving today. There were people taking its picture with their cell phones. There is something fucking wrong with people, I concluded. It's a fucking deer, not an alien.
That is two years in a row I have encountered deer in the urban core of my Dope City suburb. Slowly but surely deer are populating my city, I concluded. Will not be long before there are as many deer around here as there are on the Gulf Islands. Deer are smart: they know when they are not being hunted.
Will not be long before a deer kicks a dog to death or scares a wee child into a busy street. The Province newspaper probably already has a headline ready - BAMBI KILLS BABY.
We better start killing the motherfuckers before it is too late.
