SADDLE RIVER, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A Bergen County suburb is considering bringing in bow hunters to deal with an overpopulation of deer.
Officials in Saddle River say it’s a public safety issue and are also concerned about tick-born illnesses.
Resident Jim Bachman hit a deer with his car last year.
“Horrible,” he told WCBS 880’s Sean Adams. “I come through East Saddle River Road, I do 20 miles an hour cause there is just deer all over the road every morning.”
