Armed agents raid shelter to kill Bambi

 

I can't not think of a single justifiable reason for armed agents to go into a no kill animal shelter to kill a baby deer. Even if the deer was somehow an environmental threat, there would have been 10 better ways to take action. However, the DNR (Department of Natural Resources) in Wisconsin did just that.

Armed government agents raided an animal shelter and executed a baby deer.

"I spent 22 years in the Air Force and two years in Vietnam and I've just never seen such totally unnecessary, senseless cruelty," shelter worker Ray Schulze told the Daily News.

The Society of St. Francis Animal Shelter, a no-kill shelter, was temporarily housing the fawn until she could be moved to a wildlife reserve for rehabilitation.

A couple found the stranded fawn in Illinois, apparently abandoned by her mother, and brought her over the border to the shelter in Kenosha, Wis. The workers named her Giggles after an endearing laugh-like noise she would make.

Giggles was scheduled to leave for her new home on July 16. Instead she left July 15 in a body bag.

"This was like the Gestapo coming in," shelter president Cindy Schultz said. "Giggles didn't pose any threat. She was petrified! She wasn't even sick. There was no reason to kill her."

This story should have been more to the point. An unlicensed "shelter" illegally accepted a CWD infected fawn from an out of state source, and kept the CWD infected fawn in violation of the law for 2 weeks during which time the CWD infected fawn contaminated the entire "shelter" facility with CWD prions which can exist in the soil for years and still infect other cervids. The unlicensed "shelter" planned to illegally send the CWD infected fawn to another unlicensed facility in a different state in order to further spread the always fatal disease to other deer and contaminate more habitat with the always fatal disease. The owner of the "shelter" could not produce any documentation that a legal transfer of the CWD infected fawn was imminent, although she and others claimed that the CWD infected animal was to have been transferred the following day. DNR officers had the unenviable duty of terminating the CWD infected animal in order to test the brain stem for proof of CWD infection. State law in Illinois forbids the importation of "live cervids". Therefore the "shelter" owner who stated that the CWD infected fawn was to be sent to Illinois was in truth stating that she intended to violate the laws of Illinois just as flippantly as she had violated the laws of the state of Wisconsin.

The shelter knowingly committed multiple state and federal wildlife violations. It may seem harmless, but with the spread of cwd, conservation and dnr officials have been cracking down on violations, especially interstate violations, nationwide. The response may seem heavy handed, but there is probably much more to the story that is not included in the article. I'm guessing the shelter wasn't cooperating with the law enforcement investigation, and probably embellishing the "raid" as well.
