Muhlenberg Officials reluctant to kill deer August 17, 2010 Pennsylvania







The Muhlenberg Township Commissioners voted against killing deer that are eating flowers from gardens along River Road. Instead, the board ordered parks and ...o put together a flier to be mailed to people who live in that area.

Officials said talk of culling the herd was prompted by complaints from a resident at last month's meeting.

"My fear is we're getting on a path to kill deer," Commissioner Craig W. Fink said.

Board President James A. Murray said, "The deer were here before we were."

Both said wildlife is an asset to the community.

McNutt said the flier would include tips on landscaping
