Montana burg faces the urban deer quandry

This dilemma has faced city after city and town after town and, for the most part, continues to worsen. I recall visiting the Fontenelle Forest on the edge of Omaha, Neb., two decades ago and pondering the freakish park-like appearance of the forest atop a bluff overlooking the Missouri River. There was no understory. And the presence of a big herd of white-tailed deer was the reason. The people who look after the non-profit Fontenelle finally wised up and began conducting controlled hunts to get at least some of the deer out and give the forest and its understory a chance at growing – again. Spring forward to today and Missoula, Mont., faces the same problem as this article explains.
