FL: Hunter illegally kills deer, didn't want meat to go to waste
Hunter illegally kills deer, didn't want meat to go to waste
December 09, 2010
A hunter whose license, quota and management area permits were all
expired was cited by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
after he shot and killed a female deer.
The FWC officer was on patrol near a public dove field on Beaver Creek
Road in Santa Rosa County when he heard a gun shot. The officer saw three
flashlights moving toward two parked trucks.
The officer made contact with three men, one of which was dragging a deer
toward one of the trucks. The man dragging the deer said he made a mistake
and shot the female as it was running with a young deer and didnít want to
waste the meat.
He was cited for the violation and his gun and the deer were seized.
