The Radnor Board of Commissioners on Monday unanimously passed a resolution to permit the culling of deer in the township, reports Main Line Media News.
According to the newspaper article, the resolution calls for a three-pronged approach to controlling the deer:
- The township will enter into a contract with the US Department of Agriculture to hire sharpshooters for 10 nights of deer-culling at a cost not to exceed $50,000.
- Allow legal and permitted hunting on private lands during hunting season in Pennsylvania.
- Educate landowners on minimizing human conflict with deer.
