Bait and shoot program will donate to Food Bank

TONAWANDA, N.Y. (WIVB) - The city of North Tonawanda is bringing back the bait and shoot program to control the surging deer population.

Residents have been complaining that the deer are causing damage to property and making it dangerous for drivers.

According to the Niagara Gazette, the program will be carried out by four police SWAT team members between October and March. The city’s mayor says meat from the program will be donated to the Food Bank of Western New York.
