Emmet Co. Deer Park Gives Deer Birth Control

Posted: Updated:

The Harbor Springs Deer Park in Emmet County started giving its deer birth control this week.

The park is the second of its kind in the nation to control its population in this way.  

Certain regulations on transporting the deer made it difficult for park caretakers to control the population.  

The park is meant to hold 10 to 12 deer but right now they are at 18 to 20.
