The city of Ann Arbor has been forced to release numbers on how many deer have been killed as part of a cull to control their population.
Court documents show that sixteen deer were killed last week in Ann Arbor. The information became public after the city responded to a lawsuit regarding the cull.
City council member Sabra Briere from the first ward, who voted in favor of the cull, is glad to finally have a number after secrecy surrounded the issue. She would like for more numbers to be made public as the cull continues.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of a resident who is trying to stop the cull.
