Deer in Roseville have become an ever increasing sight in recent years. Official deer counts in Roseville conducted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MNDNR) indicate that the local deer population has doubled since the early 2000s. It is currently three times the level the city can support based on the amount of natural habitat.
