The most disappointing part of Mt. Lebanon’s deer management program that ended abruptly last week was “the divisiveness and mean-spirited rhetoric” that split the community, commissioners said at their meeting Monday night.
“For the good of the community, we must try to reset the dialogue,” President John Bendel read from a letter at the meeting.
It doesn't appear that some in Mt. Lebanon are ready to reset the dialogue, Mr. Bendel.
The Mt Lebanon Police Weekly Press Report dated Thursday, March 19, 2015 through Wednesday, March 25, 2015 is predicting more vandalism coming to deer killing traps in April.

Power broker Barbara Logan has already made her feelings known to Democratic hopeful Andy Reinhart, running for Commissioner of Ward 3. On his website, andyreinhart.com, Andy talks about Mt. Lebanon Deer Management Issues.
Mrs. Logan writes:
Lebodeer conducted a survey in the Fall of 2014 which indicated that about 95% of residents support a lethal cull.Where the heck did you get that statistic, Mrs. Logan? She continues with:
The anti culling crowd lies, obfuscates, and intimidates, but these tactics should not influence legislation.Barbara, there were rumors that you contacted John Bendel and Kelly Fraasch with the same message. This time, you put it in writing. Not too smart.
