The Deer Are Safe (For Now)

College Relations is finally responding to the continued community protest against last winter's deer culling, including the letter in the Poughkeepsie Journal last week and the "Save Our Deer" website. "The college has no immediate plans to conduct another deer culling," says Jeff Kosmacher, Director of Media Relations and Public Affairs. Mr. Kosmacher says the college is aware of the efforts of Marcy Schwartz - the author of the letter and one of the leaders of the protest - and they have "had a lot of communication" with her.

Reps for Save Our Deer did not respond to our request for comments.
