Sharpshooters to cull deer population on eastern Long Island

Federal sharpshooters plan to begin a cull of deer on eastern Long Island beginning in February -- the largest federal deer removal program in state history. Supporters say the growing white-tailed deer population has contributed to car accidents, Lyme disease and the destruction of crops and gardens. Opponents say the plan is misguided and the deer have become scapegoats. Videojournalist: Randee Daddona (Dec. 9, 2013)
