Maybe this is why people
start anti-government militias.
A couple weeks ago, a posse of DNR game wardens and deputies from the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department stopped by the Society of St. Francis animal shelter (located about five miles southwest of Kenosha) to serve a search warrant. They had reason to believe shelter employees were harboring a wild animal, which is illegal. We've all seen the stories of the guy who has a hundred alligator corpses buried underneath his kitchen floor. Rules are rules, folks. But this time, investigators found only one wild creature. A baby deer. Named "Giggles." (h/t an investigation by WISN
Next thing the shelter employees knew, an officer was carrying Giggles out of the park in what one described as a "body bag."
"When I saw Giggles carried across the thing, yeah, I did cry," said the employee, Ray Schultz.
The fawn -- called "Giggles" because she made a cute little sound like laughing -- nearly slipped through the DNR's fingers. Schultz said that the next day, someone would have transported her to a shelter in Illinois that can care for wild animals legally.
Speaking with WISN, a game warden said officers only tranquilized Giggles at the shelter and didn't put her down until after moving her to a different location.
