Second deer cull approved by Cranbrook council
City councillors in Cranbrook have given approval for a second deer cull.
Councillors in the southeastern B.C. city have given the go-ahead for removal of up to 50 deer after a report showed an increase in habituated mule deer and elk within city limits.
In 2010, 111 deer were counted and a cull of 25 animals was approved, but the latest stats show 121 deer and 11 elk have moved into town.
A date for the second cull has not been set, but $15,000 has been budgeted for the work.
