Cilion faces potential white deer problems with new ethanol plant in New York
In the second stage of the plan, according to an article in the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 4,500 acres would be turned into fields for growing willows and other plants to use as fuel to create heat and electricity that will be used to generate the ethanol. The chairman of Seneca White Deer, which protects and promotes the deer herd as a tourist attraction, said these 4,500 acres could destroy habitat and imperil the herd. Seneca County officials told the newspaper that the herd likely wouldn't be harmed by the plant. One consultant said the deer would probably feed on the crops grown for biomass, but plant officials say that's fine.
