My post Cornell gives deer tubal ligations, everything goes wrong, was meant to be a somewhat humorous take on a bizarre sequence of events. Tubal ligations and ovariectamies performed on does were just the half of it.

It’s a terrible bill, but some liberals are touting its absolute failure to address any real problems as its greatest achievement.
