I'm not done with this.. especially after hearing my neighbors 13 year old was aware of the whole situation. And the animal control officer asked my 5'1 female neighbor to help him hold the deer. What a POS..

I hate to be crass, but did you happen to photograph the mutilated deer...I think you should and send them to the news stations & papers and PETA.

Go for it and I hope you get them good. I agree that you should even go public with it. Maybe then someone else won't have to go through what you and your neighbor did.

My Grandfather always said you can judge a person by how the treat animals. It they mistreat innocent animals, they aren't going to treat people much better.

No one would think you would make that up. While shocking and horrible, I guess nothing surprises most people any more.

Please keep us posted on what you decided to do and the outcome.

Thanks.

Really? PETA and the news over a single animal? I understand the guy went about things the wrong way but I think you're being overly sensitive about it. Have you never seen animals suffer and die before? It's the way of the world. Doesn't make it right, but getting up in arms and trying to get someone fired, especially in a recession, seems a little excessive.

I just read my reply, and I felt the need to elaborate. I spent time on farms, out in the cut, wayyyyy out there. So I guess I'm just desensitized to what you witnessed. I certainly didn't mean to imply you're being a pansy or that the Animal Control Officer wasn't in the wrong - far from it. I've seen the most awful horrible things happen to deer, largely due to their own stupidity, and I've had to put countless sick and mortally wounded animals down. I guess I was just trying to convey my point of view, and came off as a animal hating a-hole, which I'm not. Seen enough blood 'n guts to not be bothered by it anymore, though.

The guy really should lose his job over this...and shining a public light on it, will prevent it from happening again. And remember, he didn't put the deer out of it's misery...he mutilated it and left it bleeding and shocky to die painfully and slowly. This should not have happened, and should definitely not be permitted to happen again. Had he put the deer down or freed it and let it run off, this would not have been an issue.

Who's to say he/she doesn't treat every animal this way? No one in their right mind would think that a 3 legged deer would just "wander out of the fence". This person does not need to be working with animals. If every person overlooks each situation, then when does it end?

I would not feel comfortable having he/she "help" an animal of mine.
