At a local city park, they are "thinning" the deer herd, which has reached approximately 700 deer over 1,236 acres, or a population density roughly 2 acres/deer. This equals about 86,000 square feet per deer. They are doing this because they feel that a density of deer that high cannot be sustained by the park ecosystem.
The human population density in Lenexa, KS, the town in which the aforementioned park exists, has a population density of 1,266 people per square mile, or roughly 22,000 square feet per person. This is four times denser than the troublesome deer population.
The human population density in New York, New York is about 27,440 people per square mile. This equals about 1,015 square feet per person, or roughly 85 times denser than the local park deer population.
But it is the deer that have thrown the park ecosystem out of balance, and unless thinned are in danger of causing their own demise. And global warming is a myth.
