ONTARIO NEWS: Urban Deer Conflicts in Kenora

The growing problem of nuisance deer has prompted the Ministry of Natural Resources to ask Kenora to consider loosening the restrictions on its prohibition on discharging firearms within the city.

Biologist Scott McAughey says the ministry is doing its best to deal with the problem by offering more opportunities for deer hunters.

A town official says the no discharge bylaw is going to be reviewed.

McAughey says the rising deer population is becoming a safety issue, citing a June collision between an aircraft and a deer at the Kenora Airport.
