Contraceptives and sharpshooters could help control Bloomington’s deer population. Those were two solutions proposed at a meeting of the city’s Deer Task Force Thursday.
To combat the city’s deer overcrowding, two biologists from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources said fences and feeding bans would help — and wouldn’t harm the deer.
Task force chairman Dave Rollo said the group was formed after a community petition drive resulted in almost 600 signatures seeking a reduction in the deer population.
The next meeting is scheduled for the Deer Task Force is November 10th.
