The city of Ann Arbor faces a second lawsuit over its decision to hire sharpshooters with the U.S. Department of Agriculture to kill deer in city parks.

Ann Arbor resident Sally Daniels filed a lawsuit against the city Monday in Washtenaw County Circuit Court. The Ann Arbor News reports that the lawsuit challenges the validity of the cull permit issued to the city by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

A judge this week denied Daniels' initial request for a temporary restraining order seeking to halt the cull.

A hearing is scheduled Thursday morning on her motion seeking a preliminary injunction to stop the cull.

The cull started earlier this month and will involve the killing of up to 100 deer.
