Park Service Uses Sharpshooters To Cull Deer In D.C. Park

Sharp shooters killed deer over the weekend in the nation's capital. The deer population has grown rapidly in recent decades, causing damage to habitat and car accidents. Protesters tried to stop the National Park Service from killing the deer in Rock Creek Park, but the hunt went ahead after a court sided with the Park Service.
