Thermal imaging cameras used for deer management
Deer have no natural predators in the UK and as such deer numbers have increased dramatically. Aside from deer culling the only limitations to their population growth are typically starvation, disease and traffic collisions. The Deer Initiative estimates that there is a need to cull at least 500,000 deer a year in the UK. Without selective and careful deer culling, deer problems will increase dramatically. Damage caused by deer can include serious damage to crops, trees and shrubs and result in a considerable headache for countryside managers and gardeners alike.
