Problem deer in East Kootenay will be moved, instead of killed

Wildlife workers are forgoing the deer cull and trying to relocate mule deer instead

CBC – Kootenay B.C. communities are trying an alternative to the usual winter deer cull this year, relocating problem urban deer deeper in the the woods in the hope they will turn wild again.

The $100,000 initiative is being piloted in Cranbrook, Kimberley, Invermere and Elkford — four towns plagued by mule deer overpopulation.
