SADDLE RIVER, N.J. — Bow hunting will neither decrease Saddle River's deer population nor the frequency of Lyme disease, a wildlife ecologist from the Humane Society said during a forum Tuesday in Borough Hall, northjersey.com reported.

Borough officials and residents have spent the last year discussing how to manage Saddle River's growing deer population, which the Board of Health deemed a public health risk, the article says.

Council officials last week introduced an ordinance and a released a draft plan permitting limited bow hunting of deer on property with landowners' written and prior consent, northjersey.com says.

Wildlife expert Laura Simon said hunting is the most effective way to manage deer problems in small communities even though no information has been collected before, during or after the hunts, northjersey.com reported.
