The deer culls scheduled for Indiana state parks Nov. 13-14 and 26-27 need to be stopped.

Fewer state parks are participating in this operation this year. We did our best last season to protest. We cannot believe this horror is allowed, encouraged, whatever.

The real bottom line is that this is a great money-maker for this state.

Certainly there are some Hoosiers besides us who are appalled at this canned plan and the false justifications for mass murder and slaughter.

Congrats, Gov. Mitch Daniels, on your pending presidency of Purdue University, with its famed college of veterinary science.

Please take a tip from New York's Mayor Michael Bloomberg who called an almost instant halt to the marathon which would have damaged the reputation of his city. Please prevent this heinous slaughter immediately.
