The deer problem in the village of Fayetteville has been a growing problem for a number of years. There has been a lot of talk about how to handle the excess population. After discussions of baiting and other methods were brought up, now there is a new solution. At a cost to the tax payers, the village will be bringing in Federal Sharpshooters to take out a majority of the abundance of deer.
Residents all across Central New York are getting sick and tired of the negative effects the over-population of deer is having on their communities. They cause major traffic accidents, carry diseased ticks, and ruin many people's gardens. Is this reason enough to have them baited during hunting season to make them an easier kill? One CNY village thinks so.
