These deer have learned to trust us, which is a very neat thing to see here. Reading the story about the kids (young adults) who beat the young fawn with a golf club brought tears to my eyes and has angered a lot of other people who live here. It really was a very disgusting story to be honest with you.

Shame on you! Kim Hall, Avalon Catalina Island: Paradise or Purgatory? This is a letter regarding a re- |i' cent article of the deer bludgeon- ing that occurred on Sept. 3--and the non-article of a beating of a visitor on May 26. The senseless beating of an innocent animal, aka Deer, is ac- ceptable behavior because: 1. The Deer was wearing a Ha- waiian Shirt. 2. The Deer hit on the girl- friends of Roberto and Ricatdo. 3. The Deer was a "have" and not a local, 4. The Deer was Drunk. 5. Boys will be Boys. 6. The Deer said words that dis- respected the locals. 7. Avalon is Avalon.

Mayor, Sheriff's Department, City Council, busi- ness leaders why are you content with this behavior?, You are here to setan example so please do something to make Avalon a bet- ter place. There is no excuse for beating an innocent animal or a human be- ing. Kathy Marie, Santa Monica Are you a writer, or would like to be one for the Catalina Islander?
