The City of Cranbrook has destroyed 50 deer over the past two months in an effort to reduce conflict with the public.
The city has released numbers from its recent cull after the province gave them a license in October.
30 mule deer and 20 white-tail deer were put down.
Officials are said to have targeted specific areas of the community based on deer aggression complaints.
18 hundred 50 pounds of meat were donatd to local non-profit organizations.
Cranbrook destroyed 15 deer last year part of their population management program.
Human wildlife conflicts and reports of aggressive deer have both declined in Cranbrook in recent years.
The City has called on the province to provide other options for managing populations, admitting culls don’t necessarily fix the issue in their community.
Cranbrook was one of four regional communities involved in the East Kootenay Urban Deer Translocation Trial, which removed approximately 90 deer from urban cores and transported them to winter ranges.
However, the BC government does not yet support the method as a viable option to manage urban deer in BC.
