The people of Ogden Dunes do not want firearms and crossbows fired in our densely populated, tightly packed town for five months of the year to kill deer for eating flowers. Despite this, the Town Council is pushing forward to have another deer cull in Ogden Dunes as soon as possible this fall.

Many who live around the perimeter of the last cull were upset by being forced to experience this against their will, particularly with knowing the majority in town are opposed it.

Many residents are not aware that the council is moving forward with another deer cull this fall. The culling was not stopped for good last year. That's why the signs are still up and more are popping up each day.

Hopefully, once all residents become aware that another cull is being aggressively pursued by the council, they will understand why those opposed to it need to express their opposition in this peaceful way.
