(Vestal NY) -- "Binghamton University has been baiting deer for years."
So says Steve Tompkins, a local deer hunter who is opposed to the
proposed slaughter of 90% of the herd which live in the Nature Preserve.
"It's illegal if I bait the deer", said Tompkins. "Why should BU be able
to do it? It's like they think they are above the law."

Anyone who has ever hiked in the BU Nature Preserve will have seen
huge mounds. There are dozens of them all throughout the Preserve,
perhaps 100-120 or more.
As a hiker, I thought they were just giant anthills. One of the trails
is even named, "Anthill Trail". There's just one problem with that.
"Those are not natural", said Tompkins. "I've hunted all over this
area, even down into PA. There's nothing like this anywhere else

So, if they aren't anthills, what are they?
"This is a combination of food waste from the cafeterias and organic matter
from the plant nursaries", Tompkins told Friends of Nature and Animals.
"I can't reveal my source, but they use a machine called a 'Goat'"
to turn food waste into mulch, then dump it up here.

The deer eat this, it's like bait to them", he continued.
He showed evidence where the deer and perhaps other
animals had eaten away at the top of several of the mounds.
"If the deer are overpopulated, it's BU's own fault".
