Group to turn in signatures to get urban deer hunt on ballot

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

An effort to let voters decide on a Cape Girardeau urban deer hunt may soon pay off.

The group called "Keep Cape Safe" recently collected enough signatures needed to get the referendum on the ballot.

Members plan to turn in those signatures Thursday night.

Last month, the city council approved bow-hunting inside the Cape Girardeau city limits.

Members of "Keep Cape Safe" started a petition drive, when council members rejected a request to put it to a public vote.
