Sioux Falls police is continuing to crack down on the deer population in the northeast side of town.

Since an ordinance as put into place nearly two weeks ago authorizing police to shoot deer in city limits, authorities say they've shot eight deer.

"We have 30 tags and we may fill all of those, we weren't sure we would in the six to eight weeks but it looks like we're headed that way," said Lt. Tom Olson of the Community Services Division.

So far 320 pounds of deer meat have been donated to the Banquet and the Mission in Sioux Falls who will pay for the meat processing.
