Man Cited for Keeping Deer in Home as a Pet

This week at the Greeley Stampede I have seen a mini donkey on a leash walking around the park. I tell you that because it sort of reminds me of this story... 

Earlier this week in Jamestown, New York, wildlife officials discovered that a man was keeping a young deer in the second floor of his home as a pet. 

The man explained to then that he thought it was legal to keep a fawn in his house for up to six weeks before releasing it. This simply isn’t true, so the man was issued a ticket for illegal possession of protected wildlife. 

The AP reports that the deer was in good health and released back into the wild.

...And now he'll likely become jerky. Sorry...
