UM: No To Hunting; Yes To Culling Of Deer Herds. “By hiring that means instead of hunters paying for the chance to hunt and kill a deer . . . East Lansing has to pay the $6,000 it will cost for this round of culling. When the cull happens the city manager would partner with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Wildlife Services to bring in those taxpayer-paid sharpshooters who will kill the deer in specialized hunts in the city parks.”

This may sound nonsensical, but when you realize that opposition to hunting stems more from hatred of hunters than from love of deer, it all makes sense.
