Members of the Invermere Deer Protection Organization (IDPO) and concerned members of the community hit the streets for a protest against the deer cull on Saturday, February 18.
About 15 to 20 people waved signs and handed out pamphlets to interested passers-by near the Invermere cenotaph. According to IDPO president Devin Kazakoff, the protesters were there to help garner support for their cause and hopefully gain a few new members for their organization.
“”It’s a bit of an information session, if anyone has any misconceptions of what we do (in the IDPO),” Kazakoff said. “We want to show that we’re not advocating for nothing, but advocating for a humane, and proper solution (to the deer issue).”
Both District of Invermere mayor Gerry Taft and Kazakoff have been a bit tight-lipped on the ongoing details of the court case, but Kazakoff did have a piece of news to impart when asked if there were any new developments.
“We can’t really comment on the court case at this point, but there will be a development with the case in the next few days,” Kazakoff said.
