Maryland has too many deer. They cause tens of thousands of car accidents every year and over-browsing by hungry deer damages native ecosystems. The state typically tries to keep the population down through hunting. But some animal-rights advocates believe wildlife managers should explore other methods. 

We hear from Brian Eyler, Deer Project Leader at the Maryland Department of Natural Resources, and Enid Feinberg, president of the Baltimore County nonprofit Wildlife Rescue, Inc. She spearheaded a deer sterilization projects in the county.
