Humanely control deer population

By Barb Sokol, Decorah

To the Editor:
Decorah residents are aware that there are many deer in our community. Some people tolerate their presence and others want them removed. 
Consider this compromise: there is a birth control method available for deer. PZP is a fertility control vaccine for deer administered by a dart rifle by a qualified individual. The vaccine is not expensive and does not pass through the food chain. You can learn about PZP online. One good resource is Spayvac-for-wildlife. 
Let’s have Decorah be a leader in Iowa for choosing a humane way to control deer.
