City Debates Deer Population


A report released last week by the Bloomington Deer Task Force has caused debate about just what should be done – if anything – about the city’s growing deer population. The task force has recommended several fairly uncontroversial tactics for dealing with the herd, including instituting a feeding ban and allowing tall fences. But the task force also suggests hunting and trapping the deer within city limits, which has drawn opposition from at least one group of concerned citizens. For today’s WFHB feature exclusive, correspondent Joe Crawford spoke with Bloomington City Council member Dave Rollo, the chair of the task force, as well as Alyce Miller, the spokesperson for a group that is raising questions about the report.
