Pennsylvania man ordered to stand trial in shooting of deer in Walmart parking lot

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. – A western Pennsylvania man who allegedly shot a deer near a busy Walmart parking lot on the first day of rifle season last year has been ordered to stand trial on reckless endangerment and state game charges.

Arcangelo "Angelo" Bianco Jr., of Derry Township, spotted a deer in the parking lot Nov. 26, fired several shots, then ran to the side of the Burrell Township store where workers were loading tractor-trailers, wildlife conservation officers contend. Bianco allegedly continued shooting at the fleeing deer, and he eventually retrieved it from a woman's yard on the other side of a highway.

Among other things, authorities contend Bianco violated a state "safety zone" law by firing a weapon within 150 yards of an occupied structure. Bianco also didn't have a hunting license, authorities said.

Bianco said only that "the truth will come out" after his preliminary hearing Wednesday in nearby Blairsville, about 45 miles east of Pittsburgh.

He was arrested for firing a gun near a lot of people. The deer is irrelevant. Who are the idiots who write these headlines?

There's plenty in the parking lot.

Some of it's for sale ... some of it's flying around...

What? He had to shoot at it numerous times before finally bagging it? Are you sure this guy isn’t a cop?

I’d go with the “I shot in self defense” argument.

Well then maybe he could try the ‘heat of passion’ angle ?

He might as well have some fun along the way..... no way out of this one.

His lawyer is seeking a change of venue to a neaby K-Mart.

That story reminds me of the old Bugs Bunny cartoon where Elmer Fudd chases the rabbit into the opera house in full hunting gear.

Years ago when I was living out along the Michigan-Indiana border a deer came into the parking lot of a local discount store, and actually crashed through one of their front windows. Severely injured and bleeding, a customer pulled out his Bowie knife, slit the deer’s throat and put it out of its misery in front of the checkout lines packed with Saturday morning family shoppers.

Now THAT’S how you do it!

Did he have his feeder set up there? Was he using the free RV parking? Did an SUV make it happen?
