An animal rights group is circulating an online petition asking Park
Police to stop deer culling in Montgomery County.
titled "Tell Montgomery County Park Police to stop wounding and killing
resident deer," had received 623 signatures on Change.org as of March 5. The
petition includes a photo of the deer, which is graphic.
petition, posted by In Defense of Animals, says a man walking near Brookside
Gardens in Wheaton found a deer that had been shot in the face, but was
still living. The petition says the deer's wound was "from a gun most likely
used by Montgomery County Police sharpshooters."
