Feral deer

There has been some success in removing the deer from the Centenary suburbs but it is a difficult task.  

They are becoming more and more wide-spread and are much bolder.  They continue to be very destructive to Bushcare Groups' revegetation and cause serious soil erosion in the reserves.  they have damaged many street trees by stripping off and eating the bark.  They have been the cause of a couple of traffic accidents.  CDEA feels that more funding and people are needed to address this fast-growing problem.  We will continue to lobby Council to rid the Centenary suburbs of deer.  The deer arrived in 2000.
