Animal advocates protest Rock Creek "Deer Removal" as season ends with 106 deer dead

The 31st of March was the last day the Park Service could have USDA "Wildlife Services" shoot deer under the terms of the warning signs and public announcements they had posted. On that day, no shooters arrived, but protesters did, condemning the 4 days of slaughter in Rock Creek this winter, and opposing all plans to continue. The next day, the Park Service announced they had killed 106 deer.
