The Daily Herald reports that the city will now use either professional archers or traps and euthanization.
The city previously used a combination of lethal and non-lethal methods, but the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has stopped transporting trapped deer to new locations because of concerns of spreading chronic wasting disease, which is contagious and causes a degeneration of the brains of the infected animal.
The new plan will cost the city about $5,000 more a year, an amount that city councilman Gary Winterton said is fair.
