Opponents of the $19,999 cull have organized, calling themselves the Coalition for Neighborhood Safety and Awareness of Mt. Lebanon. The group, which staged a demonstration in Bird Park last week, said it might file for an injunction with Common Pleas Court to stop the cull, but it has not done so. The group is worried that the shoot is not safe for people or pets and that shooters will be too close to homes, among other concerns.
The cull permit will allow 70 deer to be shot. The USDA estimated the town deer population at 90.
