Oh deer!

That’s a photo easily found on the Internet that was taken on a property in Franklin.

No longer exclusive to rural areas, deer have long made their way into urban settings.

When I first moved into Franklin in 1992 I saw them rambling around on 20th and Ryan Road.  On a few occasions I’ve seen them running on my street, once after they left my backyard.

Some see those creatures as beauties of nature. Others, like Amanda Kolson Hurley,  a freelance writer based in Washington, D.C., see problems.

And because the deer aren’t going anywhere, those problems will persist.

Read Hurley’s column, “The Deer in Your Yard Are Here to Stay.”
