Casco Bay: Near and deerDecember 23, 2011 Maine, Portland Daily Sun 

Deer reduction programs were installed on several Casco Bay islands in the mid-1990s as local populations surged... Scott Lindsay, a wildlife biologist with the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, said the combined efforts reduced the deer herd from more than 100 per square mile to 20 or fewer per square mile today... it's almost impossible to know how many deer live on any given island, he says. Deer are capable swimmers and can easily move from island to island or from the island to the mainland.
