Slow down and protect wildlife

My one and only question in response to the deer dumping (Winnetka Talk, Feb. 23 issue) is why? Why are there fie deer killed in one week.That figure seems awfully high.This could be cut in half if our communities would pull together and post Wild Life Crossing signs.We really need them on Wiilow Road,Tower Road and especially Forest Way Drive.I have asked both police departments and forest preserve personel why aren’t there signs and who is responsible for this and they all say they are not sure.People drive down Forest Way Drive on an average of 50 - 65 miles per hour and on Willow , Hibbard and Tower an average of 45 - 50.Our wildlife doesn’t have a chance especially when you figure in cell phone use and texting.
It is my opinion that we should all slow down and smell the coffee in order to see the beautiful sights to see here in our communities.We are so fortunate to have deer, foxes, hawks, egrets, ducks, geese, coyotes, eagles etc. right here. Most people who live here are not aware of this.
