The president of a Wisconsin animal shelter is furious after the state Department of Natural Resources raided the facility with armed agents, detained volunteer workers and killed a baby deer named “Giggles.”
“I’m furious,” said Cindy Schultz, president of the Society of St. Francis in Kenosha, Wis. “We are a no-kill shelter. And they killed her. They killed Giggles. I’m furious – furious.”

Looks like local news is really doing a great job.
Just to summarize the ridiculousness.
1. 9 DNR agents and 4 Deputy Sheriffs
2. Heavily Armed
3. Aerial Surveillance
4. Put the live deer in a body bag, before taking it off site to kill it
5. Deputy took a phone from one of those detained and deleted pictures of the raid from it (if thats true, he's an idiot, those are VERY easy to get back)
6. Also confiscated a goose living at the pond.
Tax money hard at work!
According to a state affidavit, the DNR had been conducting aerial and ground surveillance in advance of the raid searching for an “illegally-held live captive Whitetail deer.”
“These are always very difficult situations for both parties involved and we are empathetic to the fact of what happened because we know in our heart of hearts they tried to do the right thing” she told the television station. “
“If they put her in that bag alive, they’ve got some explaining to do,” she said. “That’s animal cruelty and in Wisconsin that’s a felony. I don’t know what these idiots did out here, but we’re going to find out.”
"She told television station WISN the deer was tranquilized and killed at another location."
“This is so bizarre it’s almost unbelievable,” Schultz said. “They’ve apparently got nothing else to do in Wisconsin.”
“They shut down our shelter and wouldn’t let anyone leave,” she said. “Nobody was allowed to use their phones. They were under armed guard.”
Seriously?! AND they confiscated a goose?!
