      For the Petersons 'The Price is Right'


      July 21, 2008 8:16 AM

      Carmela and John Peterson have two problems. Deer are destroying the
      landscape outside their Great Falls, Virginia home and Martina Caputy is
      their neighbor. According to Marc Fisher, who writes for the WASHINGTON
      POST, sometimes as many as 11 deer dine on the Peterson's lush shrubs and
      green grass. So Carmela and her husband decided to get a wildlife
      damage-control permit and get rid of a couple of deer. That's when Martina
      Caputy sprang into action.

      Martina Caputy is the wife of Anthony Caputy. Anthony Caputy is the doctor
      who in 1999 operated on television legend BOB BARKER, of "THE PRICE IS
      RIGHT" fame, to successfully unblock his carotid artery. Fisher says
      Martina called Barker and told him what the Petersons had in store for the
      deer.

      BOB BARKER LOVES ANIMALS!

      In his Sunday Column for the Post, Fisher says the former game show host
      fired off a letter to the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries
      saying if the hunt wasn't stopped, "the children would be catatonic, the
      neighbors would be up in arms, the fawns would be orphans and the does would
      be dead...all for the sake of a few flowers."

      PETA got involved too and soon Carmela and John Peterson decided to meet
      with their neighbors. Even though they most likely could have gotten the
      permit, the Petersons called off the deer hunt. Fisher says "putting good
      relations with the neighbors first is a rare enough gesture these days that
      it ought to be celebrated, even if it does mean kissing the landscaping
      goodbye."

      For the Petersons "THE PRICE IS RIGHT."
