Cincinnati Neighborhood Looks to Non-Lethal Deer Control

The first non-lethal attempts to curb deer populations is kicking off in Cincinnati.

Clifton, a suburb of Cincinnati, Ohio, will execute the city’s first non-lethal project aimed at decreasing the urban deer herd’s size with a sterilization plan later this fall.

While still an unproven method, officials are predicting a 40% decrease in herd size within two years.

White Buffalo, the Connecticut-based firm that conducts wildlife research and specializes in urban deer, will execute the plan.

The same non-profit has been behind some other urban and suburban deer herd management plans, some more successful than others.
