There's too many deer in Ann Arbor.

And because there's too many deer, according to, researchers and residents are concerned they'll eat a lot of the trees. Solution? Cut down a lot of trees, so you can see the deer and shoot them. So they don't destroy the trees. I know. I'm lost, too.

I get it. The real damage from the deer are the seedlings, so if they cut down a few bigger trees and shoot enough deer, the seedlings will be able to grow. Not to mention the reduction in car/deer accidents as a byproduct. But, some people have a problem with this plan.

Good grief. Here's the story.
