The're challenging people as they walk. They're killing dogs in their yards. They're causing car accidents. They're hanging out in groups around the high school. The deer in Alamosa are out of control, so town officials are taking charge. The town is issuing hunting licenses to reduce the number, estimated to be between 500 and 1,000.
Hunters are limited to using bows or shotguns and must be qualified by a local instructor before they're issued alicense. Most of the community is said to be supportive, but some are upset at the notion of kiilling tame deer.
