Friday's News: Deer Hunt in Greenwich Ends

I had thought that an organized deer hunt sponsored by a government or an environmental organization would be a much hotter potato politically and public relations-wise than it has turned out to be. Now though I think the Greenwich (town and Audubon) experience will encourage others to do the same.

The town’s deer hunt ended for the season this week. Greenwich officials announced hired sharpshooters had killed 42 deer at the Pomerance-Montogomery Pinetum Park, 26 at the Griffith E. Harris Memorial Golf Course and 12 at the Babcock Preserve. …

Officials said their next step would be to monitor the deer population and promote hunting on private land as a second step to managing herd size. Lash said officials have not ruled out using sharpshooting in future years.
