BLOOMINGTON — Recommendations to kill Bloomington's urban deer are drawing fire from an advocacy group that says the proposal is ineffective and inhumane.The Bloomington-Monroe County Deer Task Force has spent two years coming up with a 200-page report that includes recommendations to use lethal solutions such as government-sponsored sharpshooting, hunting and trap-and-kill programs to curb the deer population.

Bloomington United for Common-Sense Urban Planning has launched an online petition opposing the plan.

Group spokeswoman Alyce Miller tells The Herald-Times that managing the deer herd this way will lead to "a never-ending cycle of hunting and killing deer, with no attainable big-picture goal."
