OFFICIALS at Boston Crematorium are seeking professional advice in a bid to tackle the growing problem of deer coming into the grounds.
Boston Borough Council says it has been grappling for years with the problem of muntjac deer wandering onto the site from the nearby Victorian Cemetery.
And this has increased in recent years with the urbanisation of deer.
Principal officer (streetscene) Matt Fisher said "Professional advice on ways to control them has been taken and a chemical solution, which has been tried before with limited success, will be looked at again.
"This does not harm the deer but gives off a scent and a taste which they do not like.
"Last year we even had a muntjac deer which had been spooked by traffic and ran headfirst into the railings in Central Park.
"It was unharmed but jammed by its head and front legs and we had to rescue it."
