Montgomery deer-culling draws ire of AR group

An animal rights group is circulating an online petition asking Park Police to stop deer culling in Montgomery County.

The petition, titled "Tell Montgomery County Park Police to stop wounding and killing resident deer," had received 623 signatures on as of March 5. The petition includes a photo of the deer, which is graphic.

The 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."
