I'll never understand why people would run to the media and tell them their business, I'm sure telling the world you illegally killed a deer on the side of the road will go over just the way you want it to. They definitely won't spin that one against hunters (sarcasm)zimmerstutzen said:There are times when the law really is an arse. For instance, if I see a deer hit along the road, laying along the side bleating, flopping flailing broken legs and blood everywhere. It is against the law for me to show some compassion and end it's sufferring. I have done it twice during my life. If a WCO charged me, there would be an incredible up roar in the media.
This lady did bring it on herself/ Frankly, after the stories about killing confiscated fawns, one has to wonder. Did someone wring it's head off already?
Two years ago, about Memorial Day,a neighbor came upon a dead doe with a fawn standing on the road next to it. He called it in. Given the current state, I'd have to think about whether I would call it in.
I also remember the folks with the carolina squirrel they had legally, but the PGC confiscated.
