Dutch News online reports that Amsterdam city council has been ordered to cull wild deer living in the national park dune area between the resort towns of Zandvoort and Noordwijk to the west of the city. The 3,500-hectare area between Zandvoort and the Langevelderslag are used to filter 50 million cubic meters of drinking water for the city of Amsterdam annually, and are also a world-renowned nature reserve and tourist attraction. The Noord-Holland provincial council has called for Amsterdam to shoot some of the deer, which it claims are causing damage to crops and private garden as they forage for food, and has said that it will intervene if the city does nothing to reduce the deer numbers.
