In an effort to develop a successful deer management program the Bloomington-Monroe County Deer Task Force has set up an online survey.
The survey is a way for the committee to get public input and recommendations for handling the deer population. The city council and county commissioners will then review the draft and determine what type of procedures to implement.
The task force was formed a year ago in response to residents’ concerns about deer in urban and suburban areas, as well as at Griffy Lake. It is charged with mitigating issues of human-deer interaction, examining the ecological impact of deer and engaging in public education. The survey is available until September 16.
