FORT THOMAS, Ky. (AP) - Two northern Kentucky residents are asking a judge to overturn an ordinance that allows bow hunters to kill deer within city limits.
The Fort Thomas City Council passed the new law earlier this month. It allows people to shoot deer on private property with the owner's permission during the archery season.
But William Sheffield and Lisa Kelly say hunting isn't appropriate in city limits.
They filed a lawsuit this week challenging the ordinance. Their suit says the law is defective because it doesn't seek to count how many deer are killed or provide insurance or compensation to anyone injured by the hunts.
The city council plans to review the impact of the hunt after January 21, when hunting season ends.
