Press release – For immediate release

City of Longueuil puts planned cull on hold and Montreal SPCA becomes a party to the case.

Montreal, June 15, 2022 – In response to the lawsuit filed last month seeking to challenge its plan to cull some 60 white-tailed deer in Michel-Chartrand Park the City of Longueuil agreed today to suspend the operation which was slated for this fall, until a decision is made on the merits of the case.

The Montreal SPCA has officially gained intervenor status in the case and thus will be able to have its views heard in the matter.

A trial date is expected to be set soon.
