Zimmerman, Chief Executive Officer of the Cleveland Metroparks has informed the
Village that the Metroparks will continue their deer management program this
winter to establish and maintain a balanced ecosystem.
They plan a deer herd
reduction for the South Chagrin Reservation. Portions of or the entire park
will be closed to the public from noon to 6:00am the following morning on
several days during the period through mid-March. They will use every safety
precaution but please be aware of any posted signs. In addition to posted
closure signs, all residents who own property adjacent to Cleveland Metroparks
property will be sent a letter informing them of the culling program. The
resulting venison will be donated to a local food bank.
