Activists from Friends of Animals and Compassion for Animals, Respect for the Environment (CARE) filed an unsuccessful lawsuit against Valley Forge, opposing the deer-reduction plan. The lawsuit argued that the Pennsylvania Game Commission could instead stop hunting and trapping coyotes, allowing their population to rebound and naturally keep deer levels in check.
Lee Hall, an environmental lawyer who helped develop the case for the two nonprofits, said deer should not be the park's biggest concern. Cars zoom through Valley Forge, using it as a cut-through...Horses trample the hills, and the park is so crowded by human tourists parking is often difficult to find.
