CLEVELAND (AP) - Deer culling is about to return to parks in the Cleveland area.

The director of natural resources for the Cleveland Metroparks tells The Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/1jDTxYY ) that a shooting team will go into 10 reservations beginning in January.

The team goes to one park at a time and works at night. The park being culled will be closed to the public.

The deer-management program is expected to run through the middle of March. The park system has donated more than a quarter of a million pounds of ground deer meat to a Cleveland food bank.

Lethal culling has been effective at preserving habitat and reducing the number of collisions between deer and cars.
