Commission to vote on plan to use sharpshooters to thin deer herd

If the Madison Park Commission is the deciding factor in this situation, the deer will be killed. This Commission focuses on the quickest and cheapest fix to problems dealing with wildlife. Lazy thinking, dysfunctional, disappointing.

On Wednesday, the Madison Park Commission is scheduled to vote on a plan to reduce the deer herd in Sandburg Woods, a 30-acre parcel of trees and trails outside Watts’ front door on the city’s Far East Side and just a few blocks from East Washington Avenue. If approved, sharpshooters would begin work this month.

Under the plan, sharpshooters could be used in other parks “where deer populations are out of balance and severely impacting native plant communities,” according to a city report.
