Elected officials in Rawlins want to continue the management of the urban mule deer population, despite the dissent among members of the advisory group.

As Bigfoot 99 reported, Rawlins Police Chief Mike Ward says his officers are not comfortable participating in future lethal culls due to public safety and liability concerns. Whether the program, first implemented in 2019, has been successful is up for debate. Cali O’Hare has the latest in this ongoing story.
