In a previous version of this story it was stated that Terry Abrams from the group FAAWN believes legal action is one of the best ways to get the city's attention. Since then, that has been corrected to the organization wants to work with the city, not as adversaries, to solve the problem in a non-violent manner to stop the killing of the deer.
Terry Abrams is a member of the local group Friends of Ann Arbor Wildlife in Nature (FAAWN). The group, and Abrams himself remain opposed to the ongoing deer cull. The organization wants to work with the city, not as adversaries , to solve the problem in a non-violent manner to stop the killing of the deer.
Abrams says he was disappointed when he personally e-mailed Mayor Christopher Taylor to ask about a torn apart deer carcass that was discovered on the Leslie Park Golf Course. He says the mayor told him that he contacted the USDA and they denied killing the deer. Abrams says that raises concerns about oversight of the sharpshooters and their activities. Leslie Park is one of the areas the city has allowed sharpshooters to kill deer.
