If the data is incomplete it's going to be more difficult to contrive a rationalization for not removing the deer.

Lots. There are very few scientific studies of urban black tailed deer

 

What are we hoping to learn beyond their movement pattern? Which is what the GPS is for.

Anyone tried Coyote Urine? Been thinking about it a lot, just not sure. Not sure how they obtain it either.

 

 

Some anti cull activists were suggesting it at one time can't seem to find the article anymore.

I'm not sure if the island deer, having never been exposed to coyotes would have any fear of their urine smell.

 

Better thing to do would be to introduce coyotes to the island, we need more predators.

Do we not have coyotes here? They are a nuisance in the Fraser Valley.

 

We have wolves up island, yeah? Those would make short work of the deer... among other critters...

Some genius will import them soon enough. They've expanded their range massively in recent decades. They're all over the city of Vancouver.

Cougar spotted near Elk Lake Park.

 

Maybe someone can give it a lift to Oak Bay?

It seems that the deer are fighting back...

The story does not say if the deer got away, or if the chief shot it dead.  No other witnesses either.
