ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) - The deaths of 63 deer in Ann Arbor parks and nature areas have been remembered by activists opposing the city-sanctioned cull.

The Ann Arbor News reports (https://bit.ly/1QDLqGk ) that about four dozen people gathered Saturday at a memorial rally.

They passed around a heart-shaped memento featuring an image of a deer while offering prayers and singing songs. Prayer flags representing each of the 63 deer killed and depicting hoof prints were hung along a section of Ann Arbor’s Fifth Avenue.

Rally organizer Shunahsii Rose said the group was “asking Ann Arbor to return to a path of peace.”

Sharpshooters were to kill as many as 100 deer this winter. Ann Arbor is planning deer culls annually under a four-year deer management program approved last year by the City Council.
