Hot shots

The snipers that the county hired to "manage" the deer population with silenced firearms in county parks may not be such hot shots (pardon the pun) after all. According to a letter to the editor on Explore Howard, the snipers wounded a deer and were unable to locate it afterward.

The head propagandist for the county had this to say in response to the letter:

Howard County government spokesman Kevin Enright confirmed that parks officials, following standard procedures, delayed opening Alpha Ridge Park while tracking a wounded deer, but said the wound was from a gunshot. He said five people tracked the animal until 1:30 p.m. but never found it.
