Brickbat: Oh, Deer


Jennifer Badeaux /

About two years ago, a young doe showed up at the Mcgaughey family farm in Kansas. The family fed and it, and soon the deer was playing with their pets and knocking on the door when it wanted to come into the house. Then one day, game wardens showed up at the house and shot the deer in front of the family. Even though the family had never confined the deer, the wardens said the deer was "unlawfully possessed" and state law does not allow people to keep deer as pets.
