MONTPELIER, Vt. — Vermont wildlife officials are trying to figure out how to reduce an overabundance of deer in some suburban and other areas of the state. They say the overcrowding is impacting deer health, damaging forests and causing property owners to complain about the animals chomping down their landscaping. Parts of the Champlain Valley from Burlington up through St. Albans in Franklin County are the biggest areas of concern, said Nick Fortin, deer biologist with the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department.
