Scott residents object to deer cull, but decision stands Pittsburgh Post Gazette  By Carole Gilbert Brown 

The decision last spring by Scott commissioners to employ experienced bow hunters for culling the township's deer population remains a target for residents' objections

Committee chairwoman Lynda Nathenson said: "The overwhelming majority of residents we spoke to do not have a deer problem and do not want hunting in their community."

She was backed up by Janet Mosti of Robin Drive, who presented nearly 300 signatures from residents who oppose hunting and who urged the board to drop its plan to use Whitetail Management Associates to cull the herd for free.

Though there was little reaction from officials following the presentation, Commissioner Tom Castello said Tuesday that the board's decision to hire Whitetail Management stands.
