      Maplewood NJ 07040

      Honorable Mayor & Township Council:

      I respectfully request that you VOTE NO on resolution permitting Essex
      County to kill South Mountain's survivor deer in 2009 based on the following
      scientific facts on "Non-lethal Deer Management:"

      * GonaCon Immunocontraceptive - provided to Essex County Executive
      DiVincenzo at a meeting October 15, 2007 by a MD representative of USDA┬╣s
      GonaCon - single shot MULTI-YEAR VACCINE - only one injection needed for
      deer to become infertile for up to 4 years - 88% effective in Silver
      Springs, MD and 71% effective in Giralda Farms, NJ - applied for EPA
      approval to be available by the end of this year.

      * There is no reason to kill survivor deer next year. The New York Times May
      4, 2008 stated a NJ F&W Biologist last spring looked for survivor deer in
      South Mountain Reservation at night with spotlights and ONLY FOUND, "During
      six previous trips, Ms. Predl and an assistant had scanned the woods with
      spotlights and spotted FROM 19 to 40 DEER..." Aerial Survey April 8, 2008
      found "44 (deer) inside South Mountain - 19 outside."

      * Strieter-Lite reflectors- used successfully by Essex County on roads
      within and surrounding South Mountain Reservation for the past decade - NO
      deer-car accidents reported on Cherry Valley Road.

      * No reason to kill deer because of deer/car accidents.
      Fish and Wildlife application...states that, in the eight-month
      period from Jan. 1, 2007 to Aug. 30, 2007, there were FOUR such accidents
      within the South Mountain Deer Management area.

      * There is no reason to kill deer because of Lyme Disease. "The American
      Lyme Disease Foundation does NOT recommend killing deer to prevent Lyme
      Disease".


      Respectfully,
