With urbanization occurring at rapid rates, city boundaries are extending into previously undeveloped spaces, leaving many species seeking suitable habitat within urban environments. As a result, humans and wildlife compete more than ever before for available space and resources, creating real problems for wildlife managers. Taking white-tailed deer as a case in point, urban wildlife management must consider a number of factors as belonging essentially to both the “ecological” and “social” carrying capacity. Entertaining ecological and social carrying capacity considerations calls for an integrated approach to wildlife management in urban settings, management that translates into feasible, future-oriented practices, and lend itself to species co-existence within the complex dynamics of modern metropolitan spaces.

Key words: Ecology, human dimensions, Odocoileus virginianus, social carrying capacity, spatial geography, urban white-tailed deer management.
