Background

  • In 2016 a doe ran into my stopped car on Adams Road (a fawn had already crossed), leaving a dent in the front fender. She stumbled off after the fawn. Later that week I saw deer crossing in the same place.
  • I wrote an article about it: http://usameltingpot.org/urban-deer-overpopulation-and-road-safety/ hoping the city would take action. The article speaks of solutions found elsewhere, especially in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s county.
  • Since then, the problem has gotten worse. With building projects returning to Troy, forested land continues to decrease.
  • Ask Troy residents if they have seen deer in their neighborhoods; most will say yes.
