KGO TV News Report on Point Reyes Deer
ABC Channel 7 News | November 10, 2007
On November 2nd, 2007, KGO ran a two-part feature on the killing of the Fallow
and Axis Deer here in Point Reyes. You may watch the report by clicking on the

The brief story includes interviews with Karen Wilson of WildCare, Cindy Machado
of the Marin Humane Society, Natalie Gates of the NPS, and Anthony DiNiccola, the
extremist animal exterminator who owns White Buffalo, Inc. - the company who is
killing our deer.
It is extremely disheartening to see the media spin of NPS biologist Natalie
Gates being presented; we've heard the absurd and undocumented claims of environmental
impact once too often. Our friends at WildCare and the Marin Humane Society did
an excellent job commenting on the need for non-violent management of the Fallow
and Axis Deer, but, typically, Gates declares that the deer must all be eliminated
immediately in order to protect the park from terrible damage.
Friends of the White Deer know that it is the NPS and their gunmen who are
damaging our park with their violence, lack of respect for wildlife, and lack of
respect for the local community.
