CLEVELAND - There’s a plan to manage the white-tailed deer population in Cuyahoga Valley National Park: sharpshooters may soon cull deer.
The park has been weighing different options since 2006. The public can weigh-in about this method through Sept. 24.
There is an estimated deer population of 1,700 in the park. Numbers are actually lower in recent years because the Cleveland Metroparks and Metroparks in Summit County allow rangers and other park personnel to shoot hundreds of deer each year.
If the plan is approved it would go into effect in 2015.
