This is an increase from the committee's April count where they found two bucks, 10 doe and 15 fawns. Unlike April's count, this census included data from Eastern State Hospi- tal and Lakeland Village in addition to the resi- dential areas of the city, according to Candace Bennett, wildlife conflict specialist with the Wash- ington State Department of Fish and Wildlife.
