Hopatcong Councilman Mike Francis is drafting an ordinance that would on borough-owned land.
Francis said he hopes to finish the ordinance and present it to the council soon. He said deer caused 45 accidents in Hopatcong in 2009, 53 in 2010 and 114 in 2011.
He also said a deer-management plan could help lower the risk of Lyme disease to borough residents.
So, what do you think?
Does Hopatcong have a deer problem? Are there just too many of them? And what problems have they caused you or people you know?
Or are you fine with the amount of deer in the borough? Or maybe you're against hunting, in general?
