Sharpshooters use Assault Weapons to Murder Deer in DC

Yes, That is OUR headline.   I mean why does a Government Sharpshooter need an Assault weapon to “Cull” overly populated White-tail Deer? Isn’t that the Lefts argument against their use?  ‘No One Hunts With An Assault Rifle‘ Right?

Here is how the Media is playing the Story

Sharpshooters to Renew Deer Cull in Heart of Washington D.C.

deer-herdWASHINGTON (Reuters) – Sharpshooters will renew culling the white-tailed deer population, growing fast in the heart of the U.S. capital, as early as Thursday night, the National Park Service said.

The nighttime hunts by Department of Agriculture shooters in Washington’s Rock Creek Park will continue until March 31, or until 106 deer have been killed, said Nick Bartolomeo, the park’s chief of resources management.

The general public should remain out of harm’s way because joggers and cyclists are generally barred from the park after dark, according to the park service.

The sharpshooters will deploy on unspecified nights as early as Thursday, when the 12-mile-long (19-km-long) park is normally closed. Park roads will also be temporarily closed as a safety precaution.

The three-year program is aimed at reducing the deer population to 15 to 20 per square mile (six to eight per square km) from 77 per square mile (31 per square km), Bartolomeo said during a conference call with reporters.
