Development around Chatham is what is moving more deer into the county.

Pittsboro, NC - Deer are part of the ticks' ability to move about but so are the raccoons, the o'possums, the foxes, coyotes, squirrels, dogs, cats, and the myriad of other animals in our woods. Are we to also do something about cutting their population?

Development around Chatham is what is moving more and more deer into the county. As the surrounding counties develop more, the deer move to where they can find land to roam. One way to stop the migration of deer to our county is to halt the massive development surrounding our county lines and to definitely scrutinize our own county's development. Briar Chapel, for example, will displace hundreds of deer as well as other wildlife. We need to think about this.

The answer is to find a balance of harmony between our natural wildlife population and our human population.
