Slow start for NYC suburb's program using birth control to thin herd of deer

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Monday, April 7, 2014 7:19 PM EDT

The plan to use birth control to thin the deer herd plaguing a New York suburb has gotten off to a slow start.

Organizers say harsh weather and red tape interfered with the program in Hastings-on-Hudson. Workers were able to tranquilize, tag and inject a contraceptive into just eight doe out of a herd of 120. That's far short of the goal of 40 to 50 in the first two years.

The mayor and animal experts say they are committed to the program and trying again next year. It's the first birth-control study of a free-roaming deer population in an open, suburban area in the U.S.

Hastings deer have overrun the wooded Hillside Park, eaten up private gardens and caused more than a dozen car crashes a year.
