Three weeks ago, a kind family brought a baby deer to the Society of St. Francis Animal Shelter in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Now the fawn, named “Giggles”, is dead – killed by armed law enforcement officials who raided the animal shelter, seized and killed the few-weeks-old, innocent and helpless fawn.
Armed to the teeth, a total of 13 (!) officials of the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), joined by Sheriff’s Deputies, came unannounced in a drug-style bust in search of little “Giggles,” – one day before the fawn was scheduled to be transferred to a licensed wildlife rehabilitation facility. They grabbed the unsuspecting Giggles, carried the fawn over their shoulder in a body bag, and then killed her because it is their policy.
Jennifer Niemeyer, DNR’s Warden Supervisor and Cathy Stepp, DNR’s Secretary, both publicly approved the fawn killing. No surprise here since, being a huntress, Ms. Stepp encourages male hunters to take more women out to hunt, because “hunting is a lot of fun!”
These trigger-happy officials need to be reined in. After all, they work for us—the public—who is paying their salary. Use the form HERE to tell Scott Walker, Wisconsin’s Governor, that you want to see Ms. Stepp and Ms. Niemeyer officially reprimanded and a new, non-lethal policy implemented that allows animal shelters and wildlife rehab centers to take in deer.
