A Deer Mistake: The Victorian Government's Proposal to Promote Recreational Deer Hunting on Farms (Dec 11, 2008; PDF | 1.9 MB) and Press Release - Deer Hunting Scheme Will Cost us Dear (Dec 12, 2008)
Invasive Species Council Australia.
The Invasive Species Council Australia released a report critiquing a proposal by the Victorian government to promote deer hunting on private properties for claimed environmental benefits. Feral deer are a very serious environmental problem in Victoria, and Sambar have recently been listed as a potential threatening process. But evidence from around the world shows that hunting for sport rarely works as a method of pest control. By promoting hunting, governments can even worsen pest problems.
