Ask Mr. Answer Person: What can be done about deer?

Posted: Tue, May 7, 2013 5:19 PM

David e-mails Mr. Answer Person: "Why doesn't the city do something to control the deer population?  I see the deer are already going through town mowing off the tulips.  People work hard to have nice gardens and it's not fair to have them destroyed or have to spend a lot of money on deer proofing.  If it were a human going around town doing all of this damage, they would be arrested."

Mr. Answer Person says, "Thank you, David, for the mental image of a deer getting arrested for eating tulips!

City officials have discussed the deer population issue several times in the past.  Everyone agrees deer are an annoyance, as you point out.  But when you say they should "do something," the question in the past has been what that "something" should be, since the options can be expensive and might not change the situation.

If you have any suggestions, you should make them to a Decorah City Council member.
