Should Michigan Protect Albino Deer?
From the Lansing State Journal:
State Department of Natural Resources Director Rebecca Humphries wants to make it legal to kill albino deer during the whitetail deer season in Michigan, reversing a ban that has been in effect for 20 years or so.
Humphries argues that the law, as it now stands, is both an unreasonable burden on hunters and biologically unsound.
So why does the law exist? The answer appears to be a classic tale of a senator using the state legislature as his personal playground.
According to this article, the law started as a way to protect a friend’s pet deer. Seem reasonable to you?
