ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - Sharpshooting in Ann Arbor to reduce the population of deer in city parks is nearing its end.

The city says 61 deer have been shot and killed since the cull began in January. The Ann Arbor News (https://bit.ly/1oKLmwZ ) reports 10 deer were killed last week by sharpshooters hired by the city to kill as many as 100 deer this winter.

The cull ends Tuesday night, with sharpshooters allowed to shoot in 14 parks from 4 p.m. to midnight before it officially ends.

The city says reducing the herd will have a positive impact on other animals and the health of public land.
