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.
