Urban Deer Population Control Presentation Summary
A presentation summary on Urban Deer Population Control was reviewed at the Council meeting on January 26, 2015. This summary was developed by Dr. Helen Schwantje, Provincial Wildlife Veterinarian, and was originally presented at the Provincial Urban Deer Workshop in early January of 2015.
The presentation summary reviews the issues with respect to hyper-abundant deer populations and describes 6 direct methods of population control, explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
