HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania court says the names of archers who volunteered to help kill deer in an upscale Pittsburgh suburb can remain secret under the state Right-to-Know Law.

Commonwealth Court ruled Friday that the volunteers were covered by a provision in the law that allows agencies to withhold the names of people who donate to government.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette said in August that more than 200 deer have been taken from the area over the past two years.

The hunt was designed to lower the number of deer-related vehicle crashes, although recent numbers indicate such accidents are increasing in Mount Lebanon.
