LADUE, Mo. (AP) - The St. Louis suburb of Ladue could soon become the latest town to allow hunting to curb a growing deer population.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (https://bit.ly/1VmWomW ) reports that the Ladue City Council on Tuesday directed staff to develop recommendations on legislation that would allow bow hunting. The council also wants to hear a presentation on deer control measures next month from an urban wildlife biologist from the Missouri Department of Conservation.

The biologist, Erin Shank, has said in a previous presentation that archery hunting would be the most appropriate way to cull the deer herd in Ladue.

Mayor Nancy Spewak says action needs to be taken before deer herd gets out of control.
