Minnesota Sharpshooters Kill 962 Deer
By Scott Bestul
From The Star Tribune:
Sharpshooters have finished for now trying to dramatically thin the deer herd in part of northwestern Minnesota plagued by bovine tuberculosis. . . .
Eight of the 962 deer killed by sharpshooters are suspected of having bovine TB. Two have tested positive; results are pending on the others.
