A deer hunt in Oak Ridge has been canceled as a result of the fallout from the July 28 security breach at the Y-12 National Security Complex, according to WYSH Radio in Clinton.
On Thursday, the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency saidÂ it was informed by the U.S. Department of Energy that the hunt scheduled for Oct. 20 and 21 on the Oak Ridge Wildlife Management Area was canceled while security on the Oak Ridge Reservation is reviewed, WYSH said.
TWRA said it will notify the affected hunters by mail and that it will refund any fees that have already been paid for the hunt. Similar Oak Ridge hunts set for November and December remain scheduled, WYSH said.
During the July 28 security breach, three anti-nuclear weapons activists sneaked into Y-12, cut through fences, and spray-painted slogans and splashed human blood on the Highly Enriched Uranium Materials Facility.
The unprecedented intrusion has led to a series of investigations, staff changes, a temporary halt in nuclear operations, congressional hearings, and a contract termination for security guard company WSI Oak Ridge.
