An ambitious plan to eliminate about 10 percent of the estimated 30,000 white-tailed deer inundating eastern Long Island has been severely scaled back.
As many as 3,000 deer will be killed during the hunt, which begins in February. Officials said the overpopulation has been blamed for the spread of Lyme disease, damage to crops and car accidents.
