The city of Joseph is calling on the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to control its deer problem.
"Being a small town in eastern Oregon we've always had deer in town. For years they lived in the field outside of town, and then they'd migrate in, in the evening," says Dennis Sands, mayor of Joseph. "But over the last three or four years there's very little migration and they're just living in town. They have no fear of humans."
The state estimates about 200 deer are living in Joseph. They often destroy gardens and can be a hazard for drivers.
