Agents Raid Animal Shelter, Kill Deer Named “Giggles”
FoxNews.com ^ | 08/02/2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 08/02/2013 6:08:24 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

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.”

Schultz told Fox News an Illinois family found a baby fawn that had been abandoned by her mother. The family brought the deer to the Wisconsin shelter.

Staff members nicknamed the deer “Giggles.”

Wisconsin law bans residents or shelters from possessing any live wild animals without a license. Wisconsin does not rehabilitate deer so if they find an abandoned fawn, the creature is left to die, Schultz said.

“We took it of course and we made arrangements to transfer the deer to an animal reserve in Illinois,” she said. “The day before she was supposed to leave, we had the raid.”

On July 15 DNR agents and four deputy sheriff’s staged the surprise raid in what staff workers called a massive and “intimidating” show of force.

The DNR: another out-of-control bunch of tyrants who get to do what they want with no repercussions. Hope I am wrong this time.

I'm really tryin' yo get my head around this.

What kind of man, with a secure and self satisfying job with the gummint, suits up at 0600 to hop into a black SUV and arrive at an animal shelter, plays super cop with some scared civilians and, discovering Bambi decides or is ordered to shoot him ... and does ... ?

What kind of man is that?

I wonder if it ever occurs to these people what the public relations effects are when they do such things?

Nah, probably not, ‘it’s the law’ is good enough and zero tolerance and zero common sense have nothing to do with it anymore.

Bambi meets Fedzilla...

...not the least bit surprising...too many macho types with too much time on their hands, watching too many SWAT TV shows, wanting to put their too much training into use...

...that they kill dumb animals that have no clue what is going on is also not the least bit surprising...impressive shows of force have a way of being less so if someone is actually capable of shooting back...

Not a man. A tool, perhaps, or a mentally disturbed little boy who has been given the opportunity as an adult to act out his issues with deadly toys provided for by the tax dollars of others. Or, if I eliminate the benefit of the doubt, a son of the devil.

“On July 15 DNR agents and four deputy sheriffs”

Deploying 19 men to kill a faun.... real cost effective there.

It is.

If the StateGov will send 19 armed men ready to kill civilians in order to end the life of one illegally kept deer, what will they send to stop things the State REALLY doesn’t like?

That is the effective part. The demonstration of the monopoly of violence.

4% of all people are sociopaths. 96% of them take jobs where they can exert maximum authority over the weakest segments of a polite society.

Examples: Cops, Military, Politicians, and anyone in the Healthcare or Social Services industries.

THAT is just plain sick ... but then ... I remember clips of the SWAT team that murdered women and children in WACO, Texas.

If all you bleeding hearts were serious you would get the law changed rather then blame the DNR for doing their jobs.

If giggles had been placed back into the wild it would have suffered a miserable death by slowly starving to death.

Dumping on the DNR for doing their job is just stupid. Change the law and the DNR wouldn’t have to do this.

I know, I know ... the deer was cute, but cuteness doesn’t negate the law. If cuteness was used as an excuse to negate laws only ugly people would ever get speeding tickets.
