When asked whether Powder Valley has a problem with deer, she answers that neighbors have complained about deer damage to their plants and that 6 to 19 car collisions with deer happen every year in the area. She says that there are deer problems along Sunset Hills and Fenton but not in South County where there are wide-open unincorporated areas.
