Armed Agents Raid Shelter and Kill Innocent Baby Deer Headed for Wildlife Reserve

Subscribe to 92 Moose on

Authorities in Wisconsin have a lot of questions to answer after killing a defenseless deer that was set to be moved to wildlife reserve.

Nine agents from the Department of Natural Resources and four sheriff’s deputies in Kenosha, Wisconsin raided the Society of St. Francis Animal Shelter to euthanize a baby deer. The animal, named Giggles, was set to be placed in a wildlife reserve the very next day.

The agents and officers raided the house after getting reports the shelter was keeping the animal. State law bans possessing wildlife.

Shelter employee Ray Schulze says he told the officials, who he says were “armed to the teeth,” that Giggles was set to be moved the next day, but that didn’t matter:

I was thinking in my mind they were going to take the deer and take it to a wildlife shelter and here they come carrying the baby deer over their shoulder. She was in a body bag.”

One of the agents told Schulze it was a matter of policy and a spokeswoman for DNR claimed Giggles had to be euthanized “because of the potential for disease and danger to humans.”

The shelter, which is furious no call was placed before the raid to let it know agents were coming to investigate, plans to sue the DNR.
