I can only assume that the reason the city feels the need to throw taxpayer money at "Sharpshooters," as opposed to letting Wisconsinites - who could probably shoot circles around them - pay to do it, is that the good folk of Oshkosh are terrified of the thought of mere citizens using icky guns to kill Bambi's baby brother. I mean, who would willingly choose to kill these animals? Just look at that furry face!
The idea of these guys ridding the town of the offending deer is much more logical from a PC perspective because they won't get any enjoyment out of it, and the carcass of the dead beast likely won't end up on Bubba's table.
What a waste.
