Again this year, Montana’s State Capitol, Helena, has become a deer haven in the winter.

In the fast few years, police have removed over 400 deer from the residential and business areas. the meat is processed and donated to food pantries. But the deer keep coming back.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission, which holds its meetings regularly in Helena, voted to give the city permission to kill up to 220 deer in a season lasting from this month through March. The plan is to help clear out the deer, which have been causing traffic accidents. And some of them have been acting aggressively.

Police don’t think they’ll have any problem filling the quota. In fact, they may not reach that number this year. At one point, officials said the number of deer inside the Helena city limits has reached 32 per square mile.
