  1. In recent years, with the construction of new commercial spaces the herds of deers who made of those forest their homes, has been lost. Where I live I used to see them often, but it is rare nowdays. Last week I notice a herd of about 5-7 deers, and there is a lot for sale that will likely be built soon. Wondering if the town relocates them to other parts before they get hit by cars.

  2. Edna, we appreciate and share your concern for wildlife here in The Woodlands. The Township works to protect wildlife through open space preservation, resident education, and invasive species removal. However, the Township does not have a deer re-location program. Local agencies that work with injured or nuisance wildlife can be found on the Township’s website at: http://thewoodlandstownship-tx.gov/1142/Important-Phone-Numbers.
