Euan investigates whether it is time for greater control over the growing population of Roe Deer. As their numbers rise they are increasingly encroaching into urban areas and causing problems on the roads. If you would like to find out more about the management of deer in urban settings you can visit the Lowland Deer Network Scotland website and view their "Deer on your Doorstep" project - http://www.ldns.org.uk/deer-on-your-doorstep/
