That is interesting. What is intriguing is that an entire metro area, where the majority of people probably have no daily connection to a natural world, is now having to deal with too much of the natural world. Wonder how it will eventually sort out.

Wonder if it will change any minds in the area about hunting as a management tool? mtmuley

Apparently not, hunting and killing them will have too much of a "viceral" impact. Oh brother.

Wondering if they would like a few lions from nw MT? How about a nice wolf pack?

I'm with Drahthaar, Import some apex predators, When the deer get educated, I'm sure there are some feral cats or something. No point in worrying about what happens when the predators run out of prey, I'm sure there will be an abundance.

For all the deer in New York the answer is quite simple & scares them way more than hunters shooting at them.
Just throw Knicks tickets at them instead.
