About this Article

A resident-led attempt to end deer culling in a portion of Dundee Township failed by five votes Tuesday night. That means shooting deer and testing them for chronic wasting disease will continue to be a way of life in the township -- that is, unless Billita Jacobsen, the Carpentersville woman who started the movement to save the deer, is successful in the future.
