BLOOMINGTON, Indiana — A planned deer cull this winter at a Bloomington nature preserve has been canceled because conditions are not ideal.
The Herald-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1xJAgFv) Bloomington Parks and Recreation Department Director Mick Renneisen said the hunt at Griffy Lake Nature Preserve was called off on the advice of professional deer herd management contractor White Buffalo Inc. Renneisen says an abundant acorn crop coupled with a mild winter and other available food sources has resulted in deer not being hungry enough to visit baited sites in a way needed to efficiently reduce their numbers.
The Bloomington City Council voted to allow the plan after Mayor Mark Kruzan vetoed it in the only veto he's issued in more than 11 years in office.
