Mentor:  City Council Discusses Dangers of Deer Overpopulation January 18, 2012 Ohio,

The average urban area can support 10 to 15 deer per square mile, Mentor City Manager Kenneth Filipiak said during a work session with City Council Tuesday. [this number varies widely, the biological carrying capacity is up to over 100 per square mile] ... the deer had gnawed through much of the city's undergrowth.... In a healthy forest, a person should only be able to see 10 to 15 yards into the forest because of the foliage ... Keller said [Ohio Division of Wildlife] ... Filipiak added that nobody was interested in eradicating the deer. [City Administrator]
