The Town of New Glasgow is continuing discussions with the province in regards to a possible deer management plan in the future. The town is currently having a biologist conduct pellet group inventory in the town to keep track of population changes. Three years of evidence needs to be collected before the town and province can move to the next step.

The Town of New Glasgow continues to take steps to address the deer population.

Chief administrative officer Lisa MacDonald spoke at the town’s committee meeting last week on the topic, telling council about her most recent discussion with representatives from the Department of Natural Resources and Renewables.
