SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The two largest cities in South Dakota are planning to get rid of dozens of problem deer.

Deer in urban areas can cause property damage and lead to vehicle crashes. Drivers in Sioux Falls alone have hit and killed 121 deer this year.

The Argus Leader reports that Sioux Falls police have received a state permit to kill 50 deer in city limits this winter.

The Rapid City Journal reports that sharpshooters will target 150 deer in that city.

Meat from the deer is donated to charities that help feed the hungry.
