This is just some big biatch fit.

The state wanted to euthanize the deer, so someone "accidentally" left the gate open. Now they get charged with a crime.

This is just a waste of time and is an absolute petty reaction taken by the state.

Nursing a deer back to health is like nursing a pigeon or a subway rat back to health...although at least there's good meat on the deer.

Two years? How sick was this deer? That seems like there were pushing it a bit. Animals are meant for the wild, at some point you need to let them go and hope for the best./Some poor wolf starved to death because these people were selfish. :(

Are deer a nuisance in the area, like in New England suburbia?

At least people aren't wasting time and money on utter nonsense.

Stop breaking the law, assholes.

The guy is a cop and playing he didn't know he was breaking the law. Huh.

Similar thing happened to my father-in-law. He rescued an orphaned yearling but, evidently a nosy neighbor got involved. VDGIF officer showed-up and shot it while it stood there. Dumbass C.O. wouldn't listen to my FIL trying to explain that he'd been harvesting the deer's natural foods and was preparing to return it to the wild after the Spring thaw.

It may just be me but 60 days in jail or a $500 fine seem getting to choose between apples and f*ck you.

Also, someone has already raised $1000 in their defense.

Pigeons are a delicacy in a lot of countries. Not the ones we have in cities though, they raise them specifically for meat.

So the animal has lived with humans for two years. Now what do you do with it? You put it back in the woods it's going to die.

You've basically obligated it to human care for the remainder of its life if you want that life to be more than "a couple days".

There's a reason these laws exist you farknuts. I understand you wanted to do something good, but the road to hell comes into play in this situation.

FTFA:

The couple claimed they never knew it's illegal to harbor a deer without a permit.

And yet ...

The state had suggested the couple obtain a rescue permit, but it was denied


If it was denied, that means they applied for one. How could they apply for one without learning somewhere along the line that the permit was required?

I call pants on fire.

This.

Here in North Georgia they nothing more than large, tasty things in the road that will total your car or, if you ride bikes like me, kill you. They also eat the shiat out of my garden.

Sick deer? Send it back to the woods or put it down.

$350 for a BS "rolling stop" ticket along with $150 for "online traffic school" and you're getting close to the $500 range. So they got screwed like everyone else, just in a slightly different way. Pay the $500, people. Get on with your lives.

Obviously I have no idea what I'm talking about, but did your FIL get a lawyer after the incident? Not sure all the legal logistics, but shooting someone's property like that should be enough for a lawsuit.

Also probably have no idea what I'm talking about on this, but would it be possible to have a civil case by jury? Hell, just show Bambi to them and you are guaranteed a nice settlement...
 
2013-01-29 09:25:43 PM
Two years? Maybe they are slow nurturers.

/would try to help the poor thing for awhile but there is a cut off point.
 
2013-01-29 09:29:31 PM
The couple claimed they never knew it's illegal to harbor a deer without a permit.

Which is why three sentences up they were trying to obtain said permit and were denied.  I know Bambi's cute.  I know it's sad to think that Bambi would have died out there all alone, but that's just the way nature works.

Sick deer? Shoot it in the head and put it out of everyone's misery. Or nurse it back to health, shoot it in the head, broil, serve.

Smokes deer tenderloin is pretty amazing too

You know, I'm not going to say that I wouldn't have my heartstrings pulled by a sickly, cute widdle animal. However, you've got to remember that there are more deer. Lots more. So many more, in fact, that this one probably wouldn't be missed...

Not everyone is capable of making the un-merciful decision when they have an injured animal in front of them. You can't blame them for that.

I agree entirely. These people shouldn't have been fined, that's not helping anybody. (except DNR) I doubt I could have just put the animal down myself, probably would have walked away and just felt bad until I could rationalize it..

To rationalize it, as a former muzzloader deer hunter, bow hunter (one shot. one kill), it's very much your responsibly to finish the animal in the fastest way posible. Always use a sharp knife.

/does not hunt at all anymore but understand's why it's in place

2013-01-29 11:22:41 PM
2 years is quite a bit longer than the period necessary to nurse the deer back to health, or even raise it to maturity. They were keeping a full grown deer illegally, and only after getting caught did they decide they were going to let it go when it was "better".
Change the law if you wish, but don't biatch about it being properly applied to these scofflaws.

I'm a police officer in the same state.  Until I read the article a few days ago, I didn't realize it was against the law.  There are thousands upon thousands of laws, and we deal with maybe....100 of them, if that.  City, County and State Police officers are not called upon to enforce these types of laws.  The state has, obviously, Conservation Officers who are employed and stationed in every county to deal with these types of issues.  I don't deal with gambling crime, or alcohol license violations, as there are other state agencies who are responsible for those.  We (being municipal officers) deal with violations of Indiana's criminal and traffic codes 99.99% of the time.  It's absolutely not shocking at all that a non DNR officer doesn't konw this is illegal.

I guess I just assumed it was a reprinting from an Indiana source and not an original article. I guess NY must be having a slow day since a couple half way across the country facing a $500 fine warrents attention.

A few years ago while cutting hay, my dad accidentally cut over a turkey nest full of eggs. Mom decided to take them, incubate them and see if she could hatch them out. She was successful in hatching out quite a few. She kept them in a penned area behind a seldom used building and kept her contact with them to an absolute minimum while still feeding them.

She turned them out when she felt like they were big enough to make it on their own. They ended up surviving, and she would see them in the fields from time to time over the next couple of years.

She knew quite well it was against the law, so she kept her mouth shut about it. Had it been a deer that she found, it would have been SOL, since they are her mortal enemies over the battle of the family garden.

I just get sick of the cops who say not knowing the law is no excuse then see a cop say they didn't know the law. I agree with your point, it would just be nice if cops once in a while could say after arresting someone, "he claimed ignorance, and that's kind of believable because this is an obscure law we're charging him with."

I totally do agree that not everyone can know every law, but neither can every citizen.
