(BLOOMINGTON) - A group studying the problems of deer in Bloomington is expected to recommend the use of sharpshooters to reduce the number of animals.

Bloomington-Monroe County Deer Task Force chairman Dave Rollo says so many deer are living around the city that they are having a negative ecological impact in some places.

Rollo says that one recommendation could be establishing fenced-in areas baited with food where sharpshooters would shoot the deer.

He says the task force studied options such as sterilizing or relocating the deer but found those steps cost-prohibitive and ineffective.

The group's report to city, county and Indiana University officials is expected to be released early this summer.
