In her Dec. 31 letter “Where do fawns come from?,” Vivian Otteman questioned a Fairfax City plan to sterilize does and suggested that bucks be castrated instead. The fact is, it’s a certainty that 100 percent of the does that are sterilized won’t have fawns, but many of them will have fawns if the city concentrates on sterilizing the stags since some would be missed and bucks mate with more than one doe.
