Deer Cull

Deer Management Program

In 2015, the Ann Arbor City Council approved a four-year deer management plan and hired U.S. Department of Agriculture sharpshooters to cull deer in the city's parks. The second cull, which involved evening closings in fourteen city parks and U-M properties, killed ninety-six deer and sterilized fifty-four doe in January and February 2017. 2,521 pounds of venison was donated to Food Gatherers. Despite ongoing debate, the cull is slated to continue in 2018. To sign up for email notifications about the deer management plan, visit tiny.cc/dweidy, DeerManagement@a2gov.org

Washtenaw Citizens for Ecological Balance was instrumental in persuading the city to approve the management plan (wc4eb.org). Anti-cull groups include Ann Arbor Residents for Public Safety (savethedeer.info); the Humane Society of Huron Valley (stoptheshoot.org); and FAAWN (faawn.org).    (734) 794-6295


Stop the Shoot

Humane Society of Huron Valley's advocacy organization formed to educate residents on deer management methods and support humane ways to manage conflict. saveourdeer@hshv.org, stoptheshoot.org V
