(Newser) – The coda to a long-simmering fight over how to manage the swelling deer population of DC's Rock Creek Park can be found on next week's menu at city homeless shelters: "ground venison ragu atop whole wheat rotini baked with mozzarella cheese." The Washington City Paper explains: The National Park Service went through with a large-scale culling last month over the objections of animal-rights activists, and it donated 600 pounds of meat to the city's Central Kitchen, which will distribute the meals to shelters throughout the city.
