Poacher Kills Deer in Legacy Park Subdivision

October 31, 2011

Kennesaw Police literally followed the trail of a poacher who killed a deer in a private subdivision in Kennesaw.

Police said they responded to a call Friday about possible animal entrails found in the backyard of a Cranbrook Walk home in the Legacy Park subdivision. Upon arriving at the home, officials said they found what appeared to be hair and entrails of a deer.

Police said they located two deer stands in the nearby tree line, along with an arrow and evidence something had been dragged through the woods. The officers followed the drag marks to a home on Forest Grove Pass in the New McEver Woods subdivision.

Officials said a female at the residence told them her brother, 29-year-old Alton Cain, had recently taken a deer to a local taxidermist.

A warden from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources contacted Cain, who admitted to hunting on the private property. Cain was charged with hunting on private property without permission and possession of illegally taken wildlife. He also received a warning for hunting without a license.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources took possession of the deer.
