Quebec Superior Court recently refused to order the suspension of the cull by the city of Longueuil, an operation that had been planned to begin this autumn. However, the Court of Appeal agreed to hear the arguments made by the SPCA and Sauvetage Animal Rescue against that lower court decision.

The Court of Appeal has given no indication of when it will issue its ruling.

The SPCA contends that killing the deer simply because they have become a public nuisance is no longer a socially acceptable solution. It argues there are other means to responsibly and ethically manage wildlife, based on science and supported by expert opinion.
