STANLEY, Wis.—Almost a dozen teens in two vehicles drove around
drinking beer and shooting at deer, killing one of them, before one
of the youths put the animal's heart and tongue in a girl's high school
locker, authorities say.
The discovery Oct. 18 in a locker at Stanley-Boyd High School led two
state conservation wardens to investigate, and they learned the
antler-less deer had been killed the night before in the incident
involving 11 people, the criminal complaint said.
"Two vehicles were used and the occupants ranged in age from 14-18
years of age. Both vehicles shined (deer in) multiple locations and two
individuals in each vehicle shot multiple times. The group shot at as
many as 16 deer at five separate locations in Chippewa and Clark
counties," Warden Lance Goette's report states.
"It was stated that seven of the individuals were drinking beer. Of
those seven, four handled loaded firearms and three drove a vehicle at
some time that night."
One teen shot a buck, but the animal limped into the woods and
couldn't be found.
Another teen then shot the doe, which was taken to his house and
One of the teens then took the heart and tongue to the locker of a
girl not involved in the incident.
Four of the youths were charged as adults with felony offenses, while
others have been referred to juvenile authorities.
