Ann Arbor Michigan Deer Cull Proceeding in Spite of Resident’s Lawsuit

Sharpshooter hunts will proceed as planned in spite of lawsuit against deer cull.

Some residents of Ann Arbor Michigan aren’t happy about the city’s planned cull of 100 deer that is temporarily closing some city parks. They are so upset they have actually filed a lawsuit in a failed attempt to stop it.

The deer cull has been a topic of hot debate in and around Ann Arbor for months now. Some of the opposition seems to be totally anti-hunting in general, with some calling it a “firing squad approach” or “urban assault.” Some of the opposition just seems to be against the use of firearms in the city.

There has also been a lot of public outcry over property damages and disease risks being spread by the urban deer in Ann Arbor, as is shown by one pro-hunt protester Fox 2 Detroit encountered in the video.

While the deer cull utilizing sharpshooters will be going forward for the next couple months, it appears the city of Ann Arbor hasn’t heard the last of this hot-button issue. They’re not alone as areas like Staten Island and Massachusetts recently faced questions regarding the allowance of hunts in order to cull deer populations in those areas, as well.
