Iowa County to Keep Controversial Sign Despite Complaints
The Board of Supervisors for Mitchell County, Iowa have decided to keep a sign that reads "Suicidal Deer" despite the complaints of St. Ansgar residents.
The sign was originally posted to bring awareness to deer that may dash into the street, which as we all know is very dangerous for drivers and deer alike.
One resident said, "Well I’ve had a few loved ones around me commit suicide and it just touches everyone in the community and everybody in the family. And it’s a really horrible thing that doesn’t really need to be brought up again I think in official county business. I don’t think that has a place for jokes."
Mitchell County has eight additional signs but do not intend to assemble them for the time being.
