Descrizione - The shooting may not have begun, but one local advocacy group continues to make their voice heard.
Jason Miller and the 200 members of the K.C. Bite Club agree the deer population at Shawnee Mission Park is out of control. But the group says the herd of deer should be thinned without the killing.
Park officials hope to reduce the deer population by 75 percent with police sharp shooters. Miller says because of the plan, K.C. Bite Club has renamed the park "Death Park."
The Johnson County Park Board is donating meat from the deer hunt to Harvesters food bank. Deer will be sent to a USDA approved processing plant where each animal will be inspected to make sure it is healthy. Hides will be sewn into specialty gloves and given to veterans confined to wheelchairs.
"This is for the deer," Miller said Wednesday night before dumping a bucket of beef blood over his head in protest of the plan.
