Weekly Question: Does Weston Have a Deer Problem?
There's been much talk about this topic lately, so we're doing an informal poll.
The 2012 Deer Management Program was, according to the Conservation Commission, a success.
Others in town have voiced their adamant disagreement with that assessment.
The foundation of the program is built upon the idea that Weston has a deep overpopulation problem, as does much of the region. Early Internet polls by the Conservation Commission indicated that some 70 percent of people polled approved of the town doing something to control population growth among Weston's deer.
Now we're asking the question again. This isn't scientific, it's anecdotal. We want to know what you've noticed regarding Weston's deer population. Do you personally believe there are too many deer in Weston, based on what you've seen or experienced.
