Deer Mr Carter The deer are proving very dear

The author calls for urgent action by the New Zealand Department of Conservation on the longstanding sambar deer issue. While the government is protecting the sambar deer population due mainly to historic reasons, the farm forestry industry is incurring an estimated $2-3 million damages to coastal forests and woodlots every year. Farm foresters are pushing for a final resolution of a 2005 discussion document and are calling for the lifting of hunting restrictions enforced since 1988.
