Oregon Town Seeks Solutions To Droves Of Fearless Deer

A town in southern Oregon will hold a public meeting to discuss how to deal with droves of fearless deer that wander the streets, occasionally acting aggressively toward residents, state wildlife officials said on Tuesday.

The "Deer Summit 2015" will be chaired on Wednesday by Ashland Mayor John Stromberg as part of efforts to address deer that have stalked people, pawed at them with their hooves and even stomped on small dogs.

"The deer have no fear of humans," said Mark Vargas, District Wildlife Biologist for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

The confident deer are a product of a long tradition in the town of 21,000 people of feeding and befriending them, Vargas said.


Interesting enough, there was no mention of deer hunting season (bow or rifle) in the article, but I did find their deer hunting schedule/rules, and bow season began on August 29th in Oregon:

This part was somewhat funny, albeit untrue, they do need food and water. :wink:
"In reality we encourage folks, look don't feed the deer," he said. "They don't need food. They don't need water. If you can, don't even be friends with them."


Fearless deer, apparently new BFFs for some people. :shrug:

I like deer but they are as dumb as a box of rocks.
