 Two natural resources professors are members of Cornell’s strategic deer management program, which experiments with surgical sterilization in combination with controlled hunting as an alternative way to mitigate deer-related problems at Cornell and its neighborhoods.

During the 2008-2009 season, 27 does were captured and sterilized, and 26 of them were fitted with collars that emitted individualized radio waves to allow researchers to track the deer’s behavior.  Car accidents a major concern, but few ticks in the area.  Program is well received by residents.
