Hunting season

  • Sep 10, 2008 at 12:00AM

Heavy population density can and often does have a negative effect on the health of the deer population. When populations reach a certain level, the incidence of disease and parasitical infection increases, and dietary restrictions negatively affect size and health.

Vashon Beachcomber Letters to the Editor | Sept. 3

  • Sep 3, 2008 at 3:00PM

But while your article touched on communication and treatment, it left out another critical step: environment. The state requires me to close and sterilize as soon as I realize that lice have been in my workspace.
