Md. State Police to help farmers thin deer herds

October 21, 2013 at 06:22 PM

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

The Frederick News-Post (http://bit.ly/17cr4mB ) reported Monday that the program is aimed at reducing deer herds on farmland, but any private landowner can participate.

Michael J. Brady, coordinator for the Maryland State Police, said the program will link troopers who want to hunt with Frederick County landowners who want to have deer hunted on their land.

"It is hoped that the program would extend to Washington and Montgomery counties and then hopefully statewide at a later point with various law enforcement coordinators," Brady said.

Mount Airy farmer Lisa Gaver said she welcomes the arrangement.

"Deer costs farmers a lot of money," Gaver said.

Deer cause $38 million worth of damage annually to Maryland crops, according to the University of Maryland Extension website.

"This is an opportunity for you to help support your state troopers get rid of those pesky deer," Frederick County Farm Bureau President Charles Brault said.

Farmers or landowners interested in participating may contact a law enforcement coordinator at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
