Animal Rights Groups Able to Block Deer Hunt

January 01, 2002|From Times Wire Reports

A judge in Trenton temporarily blocked a deer hunt after animal rights groups complained that the plan was dangerous to residents and cruel to the animals.

Princeton Township officials hired White Buffalo Inc. of Hamden, Conn., to kill about 1,300 deer in the densely populated area.

The township is one of many New Jersey communities where an overabundance of deer has caused traffic accidents, crop damage and other problems.

A lawyer representing animal rights groups and about 35 residents said the restraining order remains until a hearing early in 2002.
