Penticton: Kimberley a model for city's deer control efforts September 8, 2011, Canada

Urban Deer Management News Archive

Kimberley’s plan was drafted after observing operations conducted in Helena, Mont., where a trap and cull system began in 2008. That program set up clover traps and netting at residential properties where owners reported problem deer. If a deer was trapped, agents would collapse the trap, secure the deer, use a bolt gun on the animal and then remove the carcass on a sled....The city also launched an education campaign to teach residents about ways to discourage deer encroachment — like appropriate landscaping that uses deer-resistant plants, shrubs and repellents as well as fencing options — or feeding the animals.
