Kayla Grams, Allen Rutberg and Rick Naugle prepare to administer PZP to a doe off of Hollywood Drive on March 27.

 

HASTINGS — Year one of this community's “Great Deer Experiment” ended last week, marked by what Mayor Peter Swiderski termed “a steep learning curve.” Instead of darting and tagging the 20 to 30 deer that Swiderski had anticipated, only eight were injected with the immuno-contraceptive PZP in an effort to reduce the village's deer population.

Back in December, the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) granted the Village a permit to administer birth control injections to deer. The Village has partnered with Allen Rutberg, Ph.D., director of the Center for Animals and Public Policy at the Cummins School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, as well as with Rick Naugle and Kayla Grams of the Humane Society of the United States, based in Gaithersburg, Md., on an initiative scheduled to run five years.

The DEC permit gave the Village permission to tranquilize, tag and inject the deer with PZP to determine whether the drug could reduce the deer population over the five-year period. Rutberg has been affiliated with the Humane Society on deer vaccination projects since 1991, and designed the protocols for the plan in Hastings.  Read more >
