Are the white deer at the former Seneca Army Depot doomed? By David Figura Syracuse Post-Standard (NY) June 6, 2014Romulus, N.Y. - Dennis Money tells anyone who'll listen that the days of the famous, all-white deer herd at the former Seneca Army Depot are numbered.
Sometime in 2016 the three-person crew from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that is maintaining the remaining 7,000 undeveloped acres at the depot and the 24 miles of fence that surrounds its entirety will pull out.
At that point, Money says, the property will likely be "sliced and diced" as new zoning being currently discussed by the towns of Varick and Romulus is likely to be put in place. Plans include a new, east- west road that would cut the property in half, opening it up to residential, commercial and agricultural development.
There are no intentions, though, to maintain the fence, and no plans for the unique all-white, white-tailed deer that number roughly 200. It's the largest herd of its kind in the world, Money and others say.
