Here is the text of Mr. Keller’s letter:

Please stop showing us cute photos of deer in lush pastures.

I agree with the experts that the herds need to be culled to limit damage to their environment and prevent overpopulation that results in sickness and starvation.

Instead, show pictures of dead deer from accidents with cars, and get interviews with the drivers and passengers who were terrified or hurt.

You’re making your readers feel empathy for the deer.

What readers should see is the carnage, rather than the cuteness.

Each week The Blade’s editorial board will pick a “letter of the week,” and the writer will be asked to come to The Blade to be interviewed for our Behind the Readers’ Forum feature, which appears on toledoblade.com and Blade NewsSlide.
