BURRELL TOWNSHIP (KDKA) An Indiana County man is facing several charges, after wildlife officials say he went deer hunting in a Walmart parking lot.
The Pennsylvania Game Commission says 40-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr., fired several rounds from a handgun at a 10-point white-tailed deer from within the Burrell Township stores parking lot, and then bagged the animal near Old William Penn Highway.
The alleged shooting happened last November, while Bianco was shopping at the store, and then saw the buck in the parking lot.
According to charging documents, the deer ran around a corner of the store, and Bianco hopped out of his truck, gun in hand, and began firing multiple rounds at the deer.
Bianco faces a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment, as well as several hunting violations, including hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game.
A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for May 1.
:-) That is funny!!
My neighbor is BBQing a wild pig today...
WOW! Just frigging wow.
I call that a southern Michigan Chorus line.
Great name! I’ve seen 5-6 per pick-up truck, in a dozen trucks, come in to the local butcher’s for dressing-out, but never that many at once. But I’m not a hunter, so I’ve never been around a collection point like that.
Someone needs to contact Jeff Foxworthy: “If you’ve ever gone deer huntng in the parking lot at Walmart.....”
“What? Youve never heard of a hunting pistol?”
I used to go deer hunting with a retired General who used a .357 with a scope and had no problem bagging his deer.
They call that “supply chain optimization”, something that Walmart itself has excelled at for decades.
Amazing how plentiful and tame they’ve become, in some areas. My Family Farm in SW PA is gone (auction next month) and I’m now living in a condo in East York, so the days of seeing the small herds moving thru, are over. I’ll miss the wildlife.
