GUERNSEY - The Camp Guernsey Joint Training Center has received a special permit from the state to kill 20 mule deer that gather on and near the camp's runway.
The Wyoming National Guard says the permit was granted by the state Game and Fish Department.
The guard says increased air traffic at the camp has made the deer a safety issue.
Base operations manager Col. Harold Walker says the camp is committed to the safety of personnel and the environment.
Meat from the harvested deer will be donated.
