Md. State Police to Help Farmers Thin Deer Herds

Posted:

FREDERICK, Md. (AP)- Maryland State Police and the Frederick County Farm Bureau are teaming up to let troopers hunt crop-eating deer.

The program is aimed at reducing deer herds on farmland. But any private landowner can get involved.

The state agency says it will link a trooper who wants to hunt with a landowner who wants to have deer hunted.

Mount Airy farmer Lisa Gaver welcomes the arrangement. She says deer damage costs farmers a lot of money.

Project coordinator Michael Brady of the Maryland State Police says he hopes the program can be expanded to neighboring Washington and Montgomery counties. He says the long-term goal is to make it statewide.
