Deer & Dogs

Dogs are attacking and killing deer in Southern Minnesota. Attacks are taking place at Myre -- Big Island State Park, which is in Albert Lea, about 15 miles north of Iowa Border. In the past three weeks 25 deer have been killed. Hardened snow packs are making it easy for dogs to chase the deer; a deer can usually outrun a dog in normal conditions. Noah Adams speaks with Jeanine Vorland, an area wildlife manager for the Owatonna region of the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, about the problem.
