Last year, the city hired sharpshooters to kill deer, but they only took a little over a hundred in a two month period.
This year, Roanoke will hire a federal agency and a private company to bait and then kill the deer.
The city says safety will be their top priority.

(( Dr. Flint's license was suspended in May, after the Vet Board found he had violated nine separate state laws and veterinary regulations. The four-month suspension was due to expire September 26th. But the Board was still considering the case of a Persian cat Flint allegedly misdiagnosed in 2002. Paul and Reba Sink say "Sweetie" almost died in Flint's care, so they filed a complaint in February. Bedford County activist Jack Mills has taken an interest in Doctor Flint's case. He believes the Vet Board failed to act on the Sink's complaint until Flint was just about to get his license back. [22:37:45] ((THEY HAD NO RIGHT TO SIT ON THAT FROM 17 FEBRUARY TO THE MIDDLE OF SEPTEMBER.)) [RUNS:06] A committee of the state board will hold a hearing next week to air the Sink's complaint. Mills believes the Sinks are at fault for failing to follow the Doctor's advice. [22:17:35] ((DOC FLINT SAID TO HIM THEN, ACCORDING TO WHAT DOC FLINT TOLD ME, "YOU SHOULD TAKE THE CAT TO VIRGINIA TECH, AND LET THOSE PEOPLE FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING ON HERE, BECAUSE THIS ISN'T NORMAL.")) [RUNS:10] According to records Flint's office provided the Vet Board, "the owners declined to take the cat to Tech." There are two entries to that effect in Flint's records. However, the Sinks say Flint never recommended taking Sweetie to Tech. They have their own copy of her "Patient History Report" - -records Reba Sink got from Flint the last time she took Sweetie to see Doctor Flint. The February 6th entry makes no mention of "Virginia Tech." And there is no entry at all for March 10th, the second time Flint says he referred the case to Tech. The State Veterinary Board sent Flint a letter two weeks ago pointing out that "records provided the client... do not contain the same entries as the records" he "provided the inspector for the Department of Health Professions...." A committee of the board meets in Roanoke Wednesday. Keith Humphry, NEWS 7.))
