Deer cull program called off
(associated press) Mount Lebanon- A community's effort to make roads safer by thinning out the local deer herd has been scrapped because of problems,including ineffective bullets and vandalism.
Officials in Mount Lebanon,near Pittsburgh,announced the action on the municipal website Friday.
Officials had earlier agreed to pay a contractor $500 a head to cull 150 deer to reduce the number of vehicle collisions.
