Police target deer

-A A +A
By April Wright, Reporter

On almost any given night, 50 deer at one time stand tall, graze the grass and leap through the Galax High School football field, said Galax Police Chief Rick Clark.

While it is quite a sight to behold, the deer have became a nuisance in Galax, causing car accidents and munching residents' yards, vegetable gardens and flower beds.

Three years ago, Galax City Council advised the police department to look at the deer nuisance as an animal control police issue.

Since then, the police department has shot and killed more than 200 deer.
