What To Do About Deer In The Valley Is Still A Long Way Off

About 150 people gathering at Kennebecasis Valley High to learn about lyme disease and potential solutions for the deer problem between Hampton and Rothesay.
Dr. Jaqueline Babcock of Public Health telling the crowd that the black-legged tick that carry and spread lyme disease may be spreading but overall numbers are still low in the area.
Rod Cumberland of the Department of Natural Resources says the urban deer problem affects up 30,000 people in the K-V.
The deer committee will be meeting in the next two weeks to decide on what questions should be asked in a survey of residents on the deer solution, if they think there is a problem with too many roaming about.
