Syracuse, N.Y. -- The city of Syracuse will start culling deer next week as part of its deer management program.

Sharpshooters are used to kill deer in select areas of the city’s east, west and south. The process is carried out by United States Department of Agriculture wildlife managers. It is done with the cooperation of the Syracuse Police Department.

The city operates the program because of the impact that an over-population of deer has on traffic, parks and gardens, as well as the role deer play in public health risks like Lyme Disease.
