City officials have proposed allowing controlled deer bow hunting. City Council in 2009 began looking at options to reduce the number of deer in the city, which averages 107 deer-vehicle accidents per year. They ruled out trapping and euthanizing deer, which costs $400 per deer killed, and sharpshooting, which costs $400 to $625 per deer, with an average of 300 deer killed per year. Council members agreed it was too expensive to hire someone to cull the herd... the city would be able to measure the success of the controlled hunting program by how many deer-vehicle accidents occur following the hunt.
