Deer

CLAYTON, Mo. – An animal rights group and two area residents are suing to try to force an end to deer hunting in St. Louis County public parks. Archery hunting of deer is scheduled to begin Saturday and run through Nov. 30 at four parks: Creve Coeur Lake, Queeny, Greensfelder and Jefferson Barracks. The parks would remain open during the hunts. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the lawsuit, filed Tuesday by St. Louis Animal Rights Team, argues the hunts pose an unreasonable risk to public safety. The lawsuit also argues that county residents were denied due process to weigh in on the plan to allow the hunts and that the county charter does not allow County Council members to schedule hunts in their districts.
