The city of Ann Arbor says hired sharpshooters have killed 47 deer in designated parks and nature areas, since the city's deer cull began January 2.

Sharpshooters have until March 1 to reach the city's goal of 100 deer.

Until then,14 city parks and nature areasremain under restricted hours while sharpshooters carry out the cull.

Last week, the city of Ann Arbor reported that 1,050 pounds of venison have been donated to local charity Food Gatherers.

Donating the meat is a requirement under the city's cull permit.
