HOLLYWOOD PARK STARVING
to help these Hollywood Park deer survive the new deer-feeding ban? I'm
leaving this photo here for a while.
Whoever brought the stack of photos to KTSA and left them
for me, thank you very much. If you'll call - or email - an address, I'll

I'm your friend in Phoenix that used to live in SA. I saw the picture
of the starving deer. What an outrage. I remember when we lived there

The policy in place now is repulsive.
Maybe the Hollywood City council should have the residents stop cutting
the grass so that the deer could fiind more food. This might stop the
Sierra Club from getting involved.
