A private company killed and removed 62 deer as part of a planned cull
at Griffy Lake Nature Preserve.
The city of Bloomington hired sharp shooting company White Buffalo Inc.
to reduce the population by up to 100 deer, starting in December.
Parks and recreation officials say overpopulation of deer at the
preserve has reduced the size and quantity of many plant species. The
city will monitor the number and heights of plants to assess the
effectiveness of the cull.
Funding from ‘Farmers and Hunters Feeding the Hungry’ allowed the city
to have the deer meat processed. The city then donated the venison to
Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
