Sioux Falls seeks public help in controlling deer

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Sioux Falls officials are seeking the public's input on a plan to reduce the deer population inside city limits.

The police department and South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks have already developed a proposed deer management plan through research and study of what other cities have done to control urbanized deer. But they are also giving people a change to provide input through an online survey and two public meeting.

Police Chief Doug Barthel says the goal is to receive as much input from the public as possible.

Many residents have expressed concern for their yards, plants and property due to the residential presence of deer.
