Many deer are being slaughtered this
winter up on the Dismal river, near the
Ilalsey forest reserve. A ranchman says
deer frequently stray from the safe con
fines of the reserve and wander out
among the sandhills and valleys adjoining
their proper home. The people living In
the vicinity of the reserve, he says, seem
to have the notion that when they can
catch them away from their proper home
that they can kill them without let or
hinderanoe, and thus these creatures are
slaughtered despite the Btrtngont prohibi
tion of the agme law.
