Ann Arbor City Council Considers Deer Hunt

Posted: Updated:
(WLNS) - The Ann Arbor City Council is considering a hunt next fall to control the deer population.
According to our media partner MLive, the hunt optionis to be studied by the city administrator with a final recommendation presented to the council in July.
Council member Stephen Kunselman says the herd has to be culled and the best way is with bow and arrow, with hunters in tree stands to control the flight of arrows.
"It's going to be heated - it's going to be a difficult debate," said Council Member Chuck Warpehoski, who agreed the hunting management plan is likely to ultimately be approved.
Meridian Township currently attempts to manage the deer population with a limited bow and arrow hunt in the fall.  Deer harvested are donated to local food programs.
