Allowing people to own deer seen as a solution

Maui has too many deer (The Maui News, Jan. 13)? But I can’t get a permit for one.

Since there are too many deer, the permit process to make a home for deer should be relaxed and allow people to own them.

Axis deer have the best meat and milk of all the deer. Deer milk makes a gourmet cheese and a high-quality skin lotion. Red deer milk sells for $100 a liter; axis deer milk is better.

Maui deer-management programs should include allowing backyard farming. What’s the harm in that?
