Staten Island, New York decided to handle its deer overpopulation problem with vasectomies.
Now that’s been snipped from the budget. As you would think, giving a bunch of male deer vasectomies would be pricey…. and you’d be right. To the tune of nearly seven million bucks (dollars not deer) a year.
With about 93-percent of the herd population nipped and tucked, there really isn’t a need right now to continue the program. But, if the herd roars back, you can blame COVID-29 for it. The virus outbreak has forced Staten Island to make several budget slashes.
