Default Cops Take Down Deer with M-15 Assault Rifle...

Police in Town & Country, Missouri (a suburb of St. Louis) had to take down a very big, very aggressive 10-point buck with an M-15 (!!!) after officers fired three shots at it with a handgun and the beast was still standing!

All this happened inside a HOME DEPOT that the deer hand trotted into.....

Talk about overpopulation!

Here's the story....

Is that a cross between and M-16 and AR-15?

i was wondering about that too, but i found this on Wikipedia---

Today, the "M-15" designation is used as a marketing name for certain civilian variants of the M16 rifle, particularly the ones manufactured by ArmaLite.

so i guess it's your good ol' m-16

This winter the city intends to hire sharpshooters to cull the male population of deer. The city also plans to sterilize several hundred doe.
Huh? Their idea of reducing the herd is shooting the bucks? Then they back up that stupid idea with the sterilization of does? Why not just have a friggin' hunt for them. Make it doe only. I'm sure people would pay good money for that chance.

I grew up near there and since I left there are stories like this every year. In fact, I almost hit a 6 or 8 pointer on the way to my parents a couple years ago and never had seen one in the twenty or so years prior. The area is almost entirely subdivisions for miles. Every timeI can rememberanyonementioning a managed hunt, residents freak out against it. It is too bad, I think they have been doing the sterilzation and sharp shooter 'method' for a few years if I remember corrrectly. People don't want to hit deer with their cars, but don't want one bleeding out in their yard either, I guess. Too bad
