Animal Control might report to local law enforcement, but they are bound by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission laws and regulations. I hope you called the number that I gave you in my much earlier post! Why not go right to the "top"??

An hour later, I get a call from the sheriff of union county. He was not happy.. He was extremely apologetic, angry, and disturbed by the whole situation and lack of professionalism.

Will this guy be fired, I don't know. Would I want to be him right now.. Hell no.. This sheriff seemed like a no BS kind of guy and said he would take corrective actions... He seemed genuniely concered about the people living in his county and the employees representing him.
Actuallly all 3 people I spoke with.. County manager, deputy sheriff and sheriff had the same feelings..

Do I leave it at this and trust the sheriff will do what he feels is right?

I'm really curious about this too. My stepdad is a vet and was absolutely horrified when I told him about this.

I was also wondering, was the deer fatally injured b4 they cut its' leg off?

I still think that this is within the jurisdiction of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission. Deer are considered "big game" and thus fall into an entirely different category when dealing with them. Game Wardens are the law enforcement officers that deal with this, and they don't answer to county sheriffs!

I still doubt that the Sheriff has jurisdiction when it comes to Big Game in N.C. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission does! People don't get Hunting Licenses from the Sheriff's Dept! I'm a Certified Wildlife Damage Control Agent in N.C. and the local sheriff has absolutely no jurisdiction over my actions when operating in that capacity. If I violate Game laws or if I were to cut off the leg of a deer, it wouldn't be the Sheriff that I'd be worried about! It would be the Game Warden and the authorities in the Wildlife Resources Commission.

I didn't call the exact person you listed, but I called the NC Wildlife Commission. They had a hot line for complaints on their website. They are the one's who referred me to the county sheriff.

That's pretty sad. I can just imagine those guys sitting around over doughnuts laughing about cutting off that deer's leg. I would get in trouble with the NCWRC if I didn't check a live trap in a 24 hr. period or failed to send in a quarterly report, but some moron is getting less than a wrist slap for torturing big game and distressing a citizen! Something is definitely wrong if this goes unpunished!
