Lakeway's deer trapping program may be suspended indefinitely

Next week, the Lakeway City Council will consider a proposal to end the city's controversial deer trapping program.  Rita Cross with Citizen Advocates for Animals, or CAFA, said there's a a lot of support for changing the way Lakeway manages its deer population.

She also said people in Lakeway are chomping at the bit to see this trapping program come to an end, and next week that could become a reality.  The city's Wildlife Advisory Council has voted unanimously to end to program, and the city council will take a vote on that next week.

 Lakeway spends about $25,000 a year on this, and there's no word on what replacement program, if any, is being considered.
