I am happy to report the three pro-cull members of the Ogden Dunes Town Council are not going to allow hunting in Ogden Dunes. They are, however, intent on forcing the town to endure another deer cull against the wishes of the majority of people surveyed in town.

Anti-cull Councilmen Charlie Costanza and Tom Clouser want another survey to see if what the pro-cull members say is true, that everyone they talk to says they want the cull. The pro-cull councilmen refused to support this idea.

It seems the pro-cull members don't care that the majority of people are against a cull. They don't care that the DNR has clearly stated deer culls do not affect tick numbers or the risk of Lyme disease. They don't care that deer are not a threat to humans.

Do a few powerful people in town have the right to demand deer be killed to save their landscaping? The majority opposition does not believe so, and they are ready to make sure it does not!
