VIDEO: Officers Declare Family’s Beloved Pet Deer ‘Illegal’ — Promptly Kill it In Front of Them

Ulysses, KS — An infuriating and heart-breaking video was posted to social media recently of a family’s beloved pet deer, Faline, named after the Disney Bambi character, was gunned down in front of them — for being illegal.

In Kansas, keeping wild animals as pets is illegal.

However, it wasn’t like Kim Mcgaughey and her family lived in the city and had some tiger in their apartment. No, the Mcgaugheys live on a farm and the deer wasn’t stolen from the wild and brought to their home. Instead, the family nursed Faline back to health after she showed up at their farm with a broken leg.

Only after Faline refused to leave did the family start feeding her.

After that, the deer quickly became a part of the family. She would often times go inside the home and sleep in Kim’s room.

“She would get on the bed and stand like she owned the place,” said Taryn Mcgaughey, a fashion, fitness and glamour model.

“But she had free rein to do whatever the heck she wanted.

“There was no way you could keep her in an enclosure.”

According to NBC Los Angeles, authorities got wind of the ‘illegal’ deer after Mcgaughey asked on Facebook whether anyone had seen the deer when it disappeared for several days. She was issued a ticket for “unlawful possession of wildlife without a permit,” said Mark Rankin, law enforcement assistant director for the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism.

However, only minutes after giving her a ticket, law enforcement officers killed Faline.

“I couldn’t believe it,” said Kim’s daughter Taryn, speaking to The Independent.

“All of our people have a real heart for wildlife,” Rankin said after his officers killed Faline. “I can’t imagine any of our employees enjoying something like this.”

However, it appears that they may have enjoyed it, according to the family.

“One shot to the head would have been enough but then he shot her in the leg and four times in the back.

“He treated her like target practice,” explained Mcgaughey.

“My son broke down to his knees when he found out she was dead,” she said of her 8-year-old boy who’d grown attached to their pet deer.

“My mum, it’s real hard for her to talk about. It was like Faline was part of the family, it’s just hard,” her son said.

According to Taryn Mcgaughey, the officers wrongly killed Faline, as owners were supposed to be given 30 days to contest a penalty notice over an unlicensed pet and a further 10 days to get a license, reports the Independent.

The video below is graphic and hard to watch. Faline, who’s been around people for most of her life appears to know that the armed men at her home are there to harm her, so she tries to avoid them.

Eventually, however, they catch up to her and kill her — as the family cries in horror.

This instance is similar to the situation that unfolded in Clackamas County, OR, when police officers killed a family’s miniature pony.

When the Fitzgerald family discovered that their pony was missing last month, they began frantically searching. When they found the pony, however, she had died from a gunshot wound to the head.

The police initially claimed that the family’s 30-year-old American Miniature Horse was hit by a car, so the deputy was kind and put it out of its misery with his police issued shotgun.

However, according to the family and their veterinarian, the horse was in good health when it was killed, and had no broken bones in the autopsy. As the Free Thought Project reported in 2015, the sheriff’s department killed their pony for no reason and then covered it up.

    It is time to disarm the gestapo. The are not protecting and serving anyone, they create a lot more crime than they ever stop. I have lost total respect for these people. Their are a lot of good ones out there. But they do absolutely nothing when one of their own does something illegal, like murdering innocent people.

    • TechGump

      “Their are a lot of good ones out there. But they do absolutely nothing when one of their own does something illegal”
      Which is why there actually isn’t any good ones.

    • doucyet

      That sounds really cool Lois. Are you going to disarm the gestapo with guns? Does your utopia have law enforcement? If so, who makes the laws? If not, who disciplines the thug that steals your shit and kills your kids? Do you have laws against stealing shit and killing kids? Do you have laws against lying? If you neighbor catches all of the fish in the pond and won’t share with the village, what then? OH, you have no such people in your village! If no such people exist……..then you have died and gone to heaven.

      • Flying Gabriel

        44 murders every day. Nearly a million children go missing every year without a trace. 200 burglaries per hour – less than 14% are resolved. Highest incarceration rate in the entire world by an embarrassing margin anyway. Hmm.
        What exactly is it that makes these laws and law enforcers so indispensable?

        • doucyet

          The shear fact that those numbers would be off the chart if no one was policing the bad guys. You do realize the absurdity of your comment right?

          • junktex

            LOL.Numbers are off the chart esp in the bogus war on drugs.Our legal system is a verifiably corrupt P.O.S.

          • doucyet

            And?

          • Flying Gabriel

            You comment infers laws and law enforcement reduces criminality, as if criminality is a symptom of it’s absence. You do realise the absurdity of that belief don’t you? Try reading something of substance like “Why Innocent People Plead Guilty” by Jed Rakoff, and understand why 96% of criminal cases don’t go to trial in your fucked up system. It may dawn on you how corrupt the system is. Also check the leading factors contributing to crime rates and you will find laws and law enforcement hardly feature. The village I live in has no police force or police presence and does just fine.

          • doucyet

            Laws help keep order, if you don’t like the law, get it changed. Your utopia without laws doesn’t exist anywhere except in your mind. You have no such village without laws, that’s a lie and you know it. My village doesn’t have a police force either, but it most certainly has laws. You break the law hear come the police.

          • Jamie Hall

            There is a vast difference between actual law necessary for effective governance of society and a pretense of law that only serves the ulterior motives of a select few.

          • doucyet

            What select few and corresponding laws are you referring to?

          • Flying Gabriel

            Rubbish. Laws don’t do a damn thing. What would you have me change the law into … a McDonalds menu? Your vacuous cliches only serve to hide your fear and paranoia induced by the same people who comfort you with their laws. Everybody’s out to get you and steal your fish.

            But it saves you having to utilise your own moral conscience … as long as you have your pacifier when you wake up each morning. Franklin saw the likes of you coming 250 years ago. Your bubble of fear is the social engineer’s wet dream.

            Hey fuckface … it was you who called me a deliberate liar for something I never even said. Go back and read it properly this time, you don’t need me to selectively cut and paste it, you’re an intellectual giant. Now your playing the victim of an “attack” surprise, suprise. Maybe you need a law against me?
            Typical of the passive aggressive bullshit spouted everyday by fear paralysed wimps who still need a mummy and daddy to tuck them in. You can’t even see your own blatant hypocrisy.

          • doucyet

            No hypocrisy on my part (returning the favor) cockbreath.

            You said: “You comment infers laws and law enforcement reduces criminality, as if criminality is a symptom of it’s absence. You do realise the absurdity of that belief don’t you?”

            You assigned me a belief system. There is your lie #1.

            You said: “The village I live in has no police force or police presence and does just fine”.

            Because your village has no police force (lawmen) then it has no law. Lie #2

          • Flying Gabriel

            “You assigned me a belief system.”
            – no, I read your comment. How old are you?

            “Because your village has no police force (lawmen) then it has no law.”
            – no I didn’t say that. What I actually said is in the quote you yourself provide. (This is getting very pathetic)

            “I never called you a ‘deliberate liar.”‘
            – Quote; ” …that’s a lie and you know it.”

            I’m talking to a child … shame on me.

          • doucyet

            Go back and read it again, you’ll see the deliberate liar two comments back. You’re right about being pathetic though, you certainly are. You’ll figure it out, even with your limited capacity.

            Indeed. Kinda like running seriously against a 6-year-old. (^_~)

            The very big difference is that doucyet has the cognitive skills of a child by choice and letting himself/herself be trained in denial mechanisms by corporate media. Corporate media (both sides) are now as much of a hate-driven cult as Westboro Baptist (the “G-d hates f**s” @$$holes who taunt mourners at funerals), which is why only 6% of Americans still trust them. Unfortunately, they’re a very LOUD 6%, and they gaslight a lot of people into thinking they’re wrong about the plain evidence of their eyes.
            “Sure, it looks like he shot Walter Scott 8 times in the back as he was running away, and his coworkers lied to help him cover it up for business as usual – but you don’t see what happened before the video! Aha! So maybe it was justified!” That’s true. And one witness used the word “scuffle”, though her description sounded more like a verbal pissing contest and aggressive body language. But so [email protected] what? I don’t care if he tripped the cop, sat on his face and farted, then peed on him. No violation of the law justifies summary execution if it doesn’t involve clear and present danger to people’s lives.
            Right now, police are executing several times as many on various whims (some of them probably justifiable) as the courts are after decades of giving people every chance to prove their innocence.

            its a proven FACT that 75% of all prisoners in America, haven’t even been to trial, which means they are innocent until proven guilty, also a vast amount of them are in jail for smoking, using or selling a PLANT. the only reason so many people are in jail in America is because some folk are making an awful lot of money out of keeping the prisons full.

          • doucyet

            Show me any stat that says that 75% haven’t been to trial. If the plant is illegal, it’s illegal. Pull yourself away from the computer and get the law changed.

          • Jamie Hall

            The laws are rapidly being changed state by state. But the same tired narrative is still being pushed by those who stand to lose their shirt if they relinquish control as before the laws were changed. The changes are simply being ignored, against the will of the people who did in fact get out from behind their computer and make it happen, because those new laws are a threat to those who can’t stand the thought of seeing their power and profits slip away.

          • doucyet

            The stats Jamie. Not more opinion, just the stats.

          • Jamie Hall

            Do your own damn research. The info is there for the taking for anyone and everyone. But it’s not my job to file FOIA requests for you or scour databases on your behalf or provide you with links to articles or videos or ballot results or any damn thing else, not for you or anyone. Sure, I could sit and sift through my browser history, etc for however far back it’s archived. But the fact remains that I had to do my own damn digging. And so do you! And if you’re too lazy or think I’m being unfair, go piss up a rope. You are not entitled to any more of my time. So, I suggest you get started, because there’s a lot out there and if it’s anything, it’s time-consuming.

          • doucyet

            Concentrate Jamie, don’t get lost in your own psychobabble. Your the one that ran to the defense of the 75% number quoted by Liz. Surely in doing so you know that number to be fact, otherwise I just can’t see you defending it.

          • Jamie Hall

            There is nary a thing wrong with my concentration, nor do I babble.

        There is precedent for disarming and outlawing the literal Gestapo. And do you know/remember what it was replaced with, at least for a time? Real law and order and basic human decency. The same needs to happen to the present-day “Gestapo’s” or the world, regardless of who or where they are.

        • doucyet

          What is the precedent for disarming “gestapos” as you put it? Who are the current gestapos that need disarming and how are you going to do it?

  • Jamie Hall

    Where are the animal cruelty charges? Not to mention unlicensed hunting and reckless discharge of a firearm. They killed a healthy deer without provocation, justification, or even a permit. Government or not, unlicensed hunting is unlicensed hunting.

    • Hugh Culliton

      Coming from the Great White North, such laws WRT the possession of wildlife are universal. This is not in order to further any cruelty, but to prevent it.

      There were no animal cruelty charges pressed because game wardens are authorized to destroy wildlife if necessary. There were no unlicensed hunting (legally this is called “poaching”) charges, because this wasn’t hunting. According to the law, the warden had reason, justification, and didn’t need a permit.

      What happened here sucks. Doing the destruction in front of the family was horrible. Indeed, maybe there should even have been an appeal, but this is another example of why people need to respect wildlife and leave it alone. Around my place (Central Ontario) there’s a saying; “a fed bear is a dead bear”. I love animals, feed birds, and love the wild. But: feeding wild critters bigger than a bunny (and them only if you don’t mind a lot of coyotes and wolves around) is bad business.

      • Jamie Hall

        This animal was in no way injured, neglected, abused, in danger, or a threat to public safety. Explain to me how any of that even remotely constitutes “necessary”.

        • Hugh Culliton

          If the people had left the creature to the wild where, yes, it probably would have died, this whole event would have been unnecessary. This is a sad story – absolutely! Please see my reply to “Peace and Love”.

          In addition, to directly answer your very salient points, it was necessary because it’s illegal for private citizens to keep wild life as domesticated livestock/pets. This is the law in many countries for similar reasons: wildlife is wild and should be left alone. This is for environmental conservation as well as for human public health reasons.

          • soujourner_truth

            Bullshit. That’s an excuse, not a valid reason. I know several people where I live in Tennessee who own deer – no problem. It’s not “universal.” Do you have any idea how many private citizens own big cats, monkeys, hell – I went to a party on a Florida estate where the guy owned a damned giraffe. People own BEARS.

            So don’t give me the “it’s universal, it’s really for the best” bullshit. Government does what it wants to do, and it’s never universal.

            If this action was legal in that state, the law is WRONG, period (and it’s questionable, at least per this story, that is was legal to do what these “officers” did). Even IF legal, for those “officers” to have participated in it, they should be ashamed of themselves. All of the individuals in government who *wrote* the legislation making this action legal – if indeed it is – are also wrong and should be ashamed of themselves.

            This was government overreach in it’s grandest form – tyranny in action.

          • doucyet

            Is it (wild animal ownership without a license) legal in Tennessee? If not, they’re breaking the law and getting away with it for the time being. Hell, I’ve been to estates that have big cats and such too……they have permits.

            Laws change from state to state, country to country………that’s the way it is. By “universal” the writer meant many countries across the globe have laws……not necessarily all countries or all the same laws.

            If it’s such a bad law and weights so heavy on your conscious, get it changed.

            OH please…….drama major? If government overreach by dropping bombs on innocent people doesn’t outweigh this, you don’t get out much.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            Horrible things happen all the time around the globe. Therefore you have no right to call the police if I break into your house and steal your TV. After all, I didn’t blow up your wife and kids, then kill you with a second round of bombs an hour later — designed to kill rescuers. (Which we used to accurately call despicable when only official terrorists did it.)

            No, that argument doesn’t make sense. But neither does mocking someone as “drama major” because they disagree with you about a situation that falls short of dropping bombs on people.

          • Hugh Culliton

            “I know several people where I live in Tennessee who own deer – no problem. It’s not “universal.” Do you have any idea how many private citizens own big cats, monkeys, hell – I went to a party on a Florida estate where the guy owned a damned giraffe. People own BEARS.”

            Really. That’s your argument AGAINST wildlife protection legislation. You were at a party where “the guy” owned a giraffe – a species declared vulnerable (endangered). In the same state with a massive invasive species problem of Boa snakes that are displacing the alligator. This is exactly WHY such legislation is necessary! Using the wildlife legislation of either Tennessee or Florida as examples of excellence in wildlife protection does NOT make a very strong case.

            Nature needs to be protected from your type of unrestrained, irresponsible “freedom”. Yours is the same “freedom” mindset corporate interests have manipulated to gut most of your environmental regulations, make things like Flint, Deep-water Horizon, and fracking possible.

            Protecting wildlife – protecting the natural treasure of the nation – from those threats isn’t tyranny – it’s common sense and one of the reasons for which your government was established “by the people” in the first place!

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            Actually, over half the country owns wildlife. But because someone slapped a label on them, they’re “pets”.

            For one example of how stupid this gets: Pigs are the fourth most intelligent group of animals behind primates, and deeply-emotional beings — far above dogs and cats on any rational scale of sentience. But someone “officially” decided that they taste good, so we raise them for slaughter in conditions we’d call extreme torture wrt ourselves, while we pamper dogs and cats. Even though wild dogs are a serious danger in many areas, and even though domestic and wild cats endanger entire populations of birds.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            You didn’t answer Jamie Hall’s points, or implied question, at all. To reiterate, if you’d like to try again:
            This animal was in no way injured, neglected, abused, in danger, or a
            threat to public safety. Explain to me how any of that even remotely
            constitutes “necessary”.

          • Hugh Culliton

            It was necessary because it was a state-managed game animal illegally possessed by a private resident. The reasons for it being illegal are open for you to debate, though in my experience, whenever wildlife come into close contact with people, no matter how well-intentioned is the contact, the wildlife is always suffers. Yes this includes song birds, given the millions slaughtered annually by roaming house cats.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            No, that’s why it’s illegal. Being illegal doesn’t demonstrate it’s “necessary”, especially given the points that Jamie Hall raised that you haven’t addressed.

          • Hugh Culliton

            OK: you’ve got me! You’re right – obeying laws isn’t necessary…assuming you’re OK with becoming involved with the legal system because right or wrong, opposing the law of the land does have consequences.

            If you feel that this is anti-democratic Deep State oppression – go for it! Fight this law hard and long, and good luck! However, make sure that you understand the jurisprudence leading to the law’s existence in the first place before you assume that it’s unnecessary.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            You should probably look up the most-common definitions of “necessary” and “mandatory” in the dictionary before continuing. They’re not the same thing, unless you consider government authority close to absolute.
            Also, it might not be a good idea to lead with unwarranted assumptions when you’re accusing someone of making unwarranted assumptions.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            And so departs the worshipper of authoritarian government (as long as it picks on his Them, not realizing everyone is someone’s Them). It beats me how anyone but a member of the powerful or one of their tools can defend this nonsense.

          • Hugh Culliton

            Not all law is bad law. Some of it is common sense that saves lives or serves a very real common good such as the protection and conservation of natural resources.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            Not all law is bad law.
            Excellent point. Did someone say otherwise and I’m unable to see their comment? I’d hate to think you’d do something as blatantly dishonest as imply that I did, when anyone can see for themselves it’s completely untrue.

          • Hugh Culliton

            The consequences of my being wrong are that we improve our relationship with the planet with unnecessary haste. The consequences of you being wrong is the end of civilization. I’m going with the safe money.

            The consequences of you being wrong are further empowering police to do whatever they like, including something as ridiculous as this. Trust me, they don’t need the encouragement.
            But what’s really telling is that you think the consequences of not empowering police to do whatever they like would be “the end of civilization”. Just like not empowering the TSA to nudie-scan little children would lead to “the terrorists win”. Study Roman history, and you’ll find that expedient behavior in the name of public safety leads to some rather nasty “consequences”.

        • Iftheaccidentwill

          Geez, stop making so much sense. Soon that’ll be illegal, along with “fake news” (i.e. video that embarrasses the establishment and/or clearly demonstrates official corporate media are lying.

        • Hugh Culliton

          First – this sucks: there are few things cuter and more lovable than a faun. In this family’s place, I personally would have a very hard time leaving one to the cruel winds of fate. That said, I’ve also had the unpleasant task of having to euthanize some very cute creatures as a direct result of their interactions with people feeding them (killed by cars, pets, or game wardens having to destroy them because w/o fear of people, they become a danger.. Wild creatures that are fed loose their fear of people, which almost invariably results in the eventual death on the animal.

          This instance might very well be the exception that proves the rule because these folks were caring very well for the deer. But remember what happened at Marine Land in Niagara Falls last week- not all people can look after wildlife as well.

          As a species, it’s our great responsibility to determine our relationship to the environment including the flora and fauna. Frankly, I think that there’s ample evidence to conclude that we’ve been slacking WRT our husbandry of the natural world. But to improve, as societies, we need to effectively manage all of our interactions with nature – both personally and commercially. The only way to do this, is for there to be agreed-on, clear, evidence-backed, and enforceable laws to regulate our interactions.

          This incident seems to have been badly botched by the officers – no argument. But the reasons for the law existing in the first place are sound.

          • Jamie Hall

            Well it sure is a good thing Cujo the deer and those like her will never know the dangers associated with human interaction ever again. Human society and animal kind alike are so much better off because of it too.

            On second thought, why don’t you go feed a bear… by being the main course? The only downside is that the bear would then be hunted down and killed for being a pred… er, I mean a wild bear. But some people seem not to be able to make that distinction. That’s what’s really wrong with our relationship with nature. It’s not the animals or even the people caring for them. It’s the doesn’t-know-its-ass-from-a-hole-in-the-ground establishment mistakenly believing that its acting in the best interests of all involved, and the apologists who then further enable them by making excuses for them regardless of how egregious their behavior is.

          • Hugh Culliton

            Fair enough.

          • TechGump

            Obviously the the law is not sound. Unless you can identify how this deer actually harmed a human (I’d argument in some irrevocable manner), there’s something wrong with the law.
            Dogs and cats, a long with a long list of other animals, weren’t domesticated overnight. It’s been perfectly natural for humans over tens of thousands of years to adopt wild animals into the family and community for a multitude of reasons. Blanket laws that allow for the murder of animals under the pretense of some future crime that has not occurred isn’t “sound”.

          • Hugh Culliton

            But what is the reason behind the law? When was it written? What was going on when it was written? From what I know, generally such wildlife legislation was drafted around the end of the West – around the turn of the 20th century. Times were changing and conservation was a growing and strong movement. They wanted to protect wildlife from people. To do so, they realized the need to keep them apart from each other.

          • TechGump

            The road to Hell is paved with good intentions.”
            I frankly don’t care the intent of the law. Plenty of laws have been based on good intent with horrific outcomes. The intent of the law isn’t the issue being argued, nor does it make it a “solid” law.

          • Iftheaccidentwill

            If harm to the animal was the concern/intent, then shooting it dead surely isn’t the solution.
            You cop-bashers are always twisting things. I suppose next you’ll try to say it’s a bad idea for cops to charge into situations where someone called for help due to mental distress, apply the usual “yell the loudest, threaten the most, and have the tiniest hair-trigger”, and walk off congratulating themselves for airing out the person’s internal organs after they get an excuse to “feel threatened”.

  • ahughes798

    The officers were wrong for not following the law. The owners were wrong for keeping the deer, since it against the law, too. When they found the deer with it’s broken leg, the right thing to do would have been to give it to a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, who would have fixed it’s leg, and returned it back to the wild. It’s just a shitty mess all around, and my sympathies go out to the deer, because SHE didn’t do anything wrong. 

    • Justin Batterton

      My question is why didn’t the officers offer to bring in someone to relocate the deer or give them an option to take it to a local Wildlife shelter.

      It sounds almost like they just wanted to shoot a deer.

      • ahughes798

        I think they were a little too eager, too. I’m definitely against what happened here. They were too eager…they broke the law in order to shoot the deer, there was a bureaucratic process to go through, first, and then the owners would have been given the chance to give the animal to licensed wildlife rehabilitators, or, they would have been given the opportunity to apply for a license to become certified wildlife rehabiltators.

            Probably that I have compassion, humanity and respect for other people, asshat.

            You don’t like ’em – fine. Don’t own them. Don’t care for them. Hell – hunt wild animals that are legal to hunt. But to have your response to a family that watched a creature they loved and cared for simply shows you’re a sub-human shitstain. While it’s my own personal opinion, I have more respect for a dog or house cat than I do a shitstain of a human being like you.

            As for your opinion of me – type all you’d like; I couldn’t care less. You can have the last word – as far as I’m concerned you’re dismissed.

      So if something is “against the law” it’s morally wrong to do it? Sorry, I disagree completely.

        So fu****g true. Everyone on here is breaking a “law” right now! They passed 115 NEW ones in 2015 alone. Worthless pigs making up “laws” as they go along! I’m with Bob Marley!

      • ahughes798

        Since I’m not a man, I can’t think like one, thank God. Well, what if someone decides that a law is unjust, and acts on his “obligation” to disobey the law, and gets somebody killed? What if everybody wiily-nilly decided to obey only the laws that they thought were just? The only victim in this sad event was the deer.

        • TechGump

          So you need permission to do things that are just? And one should comply to laws that are unjust? That’s just crazy.
          Perhaps if people only obliged to laws they believed were just, Gov’ts wouldn’t be capable of killing hundreds of millions in a century under the color of law. Yes… imagine that.
          How ironic it is that it is right to murder a deer but wrong to save and keep one, becuase, of course, it’s the law.

      • Hugh Culliton

        Generally speaking, wildlife legislation isn’t a nefarious product of the Deep State Corporate Fascists. In this case, such legislation is actually built on an ethical and moral foundation: the protection of wildlife. I mean, some of this stuff was drafted by Teddy Roosevelt, for heaven’s sake!

        • Eric Mulherin

          That deer looks realllllllllly protected now. Give it a rest dude. Shooting that deer is indefensible. You are just making yourself look small.

    • Hugh Culliton

      I agree completely!

    • Jamie Hall

      There’s just one little problem with your plan. They don’t rehabilitate deer and reintroduce them to the wild. They just straight up kill them.

      • ahughes798

        In my area, they do. The Rehabilitators are licensed by the gov’t., but they are private entities. They can rehabilitate any wild animal, or if it is too injured, they will euthanise it.

        • Jamie Hall

          Then your area is a fortunate exception, based on accounts such as this one and others like it where cruelty, not an emphasis on rehabilitation, reigns supreme.

          • ahughes798

            Look what a simple google search for “Wildlife Rehabiltators, KS” turns up:

            http://wildlife.rescueshelter.com/Kansas

            I’m not excusing the cops for their actions, and I think I’ve said it half a dozen times. But there was help available for Faline when she was found. Wild animals are NOT pets.

          • Jamie Hall

            Well, if even the great and powerful Google says it then it must truly be beyond reproach. Who the hell are you trying to kid? You can spout statist ideology from now until the end of time. It in no way negates the barbarity or immortality of any of it. You are nothing more than a horse with blinders on, and you are surrounded by cliffs. It’s only a matter of time before you and all who share your mindset plunge into the abyss, be it collectively or otherwise.

          • ahughes798

            Google is what it is. The webpage I directed you to shows that there are many places to take injured wildlife in KS. How many fucking times do I have to say that the police officers were wrong? That there was a procedure to follow and they did not follow it? When did I say that the shooting was not barbaric? The “owners” of this deer share some of the blame no matter how you look at it. The deer was the sole victim here. Maybe someone should keep a mountain lion in the house next to yours? Let it come and go as it pleases? You are a paranoid anti-statist, and I suggest you go live somewhere where there aren’t any laws. Somalia, or perhaps Uganda, would be good for you!

  • Free_Willey

    My concern is the heavy title given in the headline. The headline “Officers Declare Family’s Beloved Pet Deer ‘Illegal’ — Promptly Kill it In Front of Them” is utterly misleading. The deer had a broken leg. I do not know if the area I live even has a means for treating such animals. To leave it in nature some may argue would be less humane. Did the police and the lady in the video have alternate means to treat the animal? No real information is given in the story. So it appears that The Free Thought project just picked up the story, did no further investigating and their analysis was that these cops suck. This action makes you guys look really bad. I guess since everyone else is reporting fake news, The Free Thought project thought it would hop on the bandwagon too. Many look to TFTP to be rational. This is a terrible example of rational.

    • Justin Batterton

      The deer HAD a broken leg. It had since healed thanks to the family’s help.

      I agree, people should leave wild animals alone. But the point of the story is that these Officers didn’t give the people their due right to pursue a permit to own the animal or even take it to a wildlife shelter. They issued a ticket (simple extortion for money) and then shot it.

      Maybe read the whole story and not the headline + the first 2 sentences.

      • permalink

        The family does not get a “due right” because it is illegal to keep wildlife — idiot.

        • Avril Horne

          The family wasn’t “Keeping the deer.” The deer came & went as it pleased. As was witnessed in the video. And if you want to argue that point, then you have violated the same laws by feeding some type of creature just by your waste alone. Maybe throwing out a piece of trash that a fox ate, or where ever your trash ended up. Maybe wild animals ate the food left our for pets. Do you not see how twisted anything can be made it to?

            No, it’s a far older concept than that. It’s about identifying the primary cause of an event or series of events. In this case:

          • Jamie Hall

            Except that this “creature”, as you keep calling it in an effort to alienate it in the minds of readers, was not even remotely “captured” from the woods or even held captive.

            ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

            Regardless of what goes through the minds of the readers or what preconceptions they may or may not have, a deer is a “creature”. I chose the word specifically because it was it was the most simple and accurate word to describe what I was trying to say – not for any nefarious purpose.

            This animal was captured as the family took it into their possession. The deer is, and has been for a very long time, a legally state-managed game animal. This deer, suffering a no doubt lethal injury, was found in the woods and was captured (proof that it was “captured”: 1 – read the word’s definition, 2 – have you ever caught a healthy faun? No? There’s a reason why you haven’t: they’ve evolved to be very hard to catch). Whether the animal eventually enjoyed it’s captivity is irrelevant: it remained wildlife that belonged in the wild.

            You can beat me up all you want – I’m just trying to explain the logic behind the wildlife laws – I’m not cheering the demise of this creature in any way. Everything about this story is tragic. We also need to remember that life is tragic as well. Animals, even cute ones, die every day – Elton John wrote a nice song about it. Nature is tough and only a tiny fraction of wildlife ever die of what we’d call “old age”. But the laws preventing the general public from catching and keeping wildlife without proper authorization exist for sound and just reasons.

        • Tony Clarke Stephen Hawco

          Yes I do. The root cause of this incident is the bureaucrats thinking they’re gods and imposing arbitrary regulations, causing these psychopaths to go kill a family pet.

          • doucyet

            You can also look at it like this. The root cause in this case is the people allowing the bureaucrats to pass laws that are overreaching. There are ways to look at things TC.

            l
            Why did the Police kill this deer? Why is it “illegal” to keep a deer as a pet? Will the police come in and smash aquariums filled with goldfish, since they are carp? What is the reasoning about not keeping deer? From the video this officer intentionally shot this deer so that it could not even be used for food? I could understand restrictions on keeping a deer on a suburban lot, but on a working farm? This was animal cruelty plan and simple. The family should be compensated and that officer should be fired.

          • doucyet

            It sounds like you have a lot questions for the ND Fish & Game department.

          • The Cat’s Vagina

            Not to nitpick, but there’s really only two ways to shoot an animal where it can’t be eaten. One is to use a large enough caliber to blow the animal apart (like a .30-06 on a rabbit) and the other is to hit it with a shotgun so many times that the flesh is riddled with pellets. Plus, who would eat the poor thing? People tend to have a strong aversion to eating animals they know and care about, even if it’s of a species they normally consider livestock.

          • Tony Clarke Stephen Hawco

            The government isn’t going to change just because people want it to. They have no accountability to anyone. It especially won’t change when one of the various liars is in office, like we’ve had around the world for the past 20 years.

            The US started with principles of freedom, but they thought they could maintain freedom by voting. Look at how that turned out.

      • Hugh Culliton

        The law you speak of was drafted over a century ago, by people who were just as concerned about wildlife as us. There are old and very legitimate reasons why people are not allowed to possess wildlife, especially state-managed game animals.

        • Tony Clarke Stephen Hawco

          If you can make an argument for why killing it was the right thing to do without using the words “law, legal, lawful, authority, or government” then we’ll talk. The law has always stood in the way of what’s right and made otherwise decent people do horrible things.

          • Hugh Culliton

            Fair enough – I was just trying to explain the origin of the laws. Like I said, this is an awful, awful situation.

      • ahughes798

        The only victim here was the deer. Since our laws are based, in part, on Judeo-Christian principles, I would suggest to you that people who follow the law are moral and do support freedom. That deer wasn’t a pet. You cannot make a wild animal into a pet, and if you try to do so, you are putting it in greater danger by acclimating it to human beings. Would it make you feel better if Faline had walked up to some hunters during deer season and gotten killed by them?

        • Tony Clarke Stephen Hawco

          The constitution was based on Judeo-Christian principles, not the laws. The laws are an attempt to overthrow Biblical morality with moral relativism, where one thing can be wrong over there, right over here and then wrong over here tomorrow.

          That deer was a pet. It refused to leave them after being nursed to health and treated them like family.

          Are you saying that killing this deer in front of the family was justified because it might of wandered off and gotten killed by a hunter? Are you mad?

          • ahughes798

            If you read what I said, I said that the police broke the law in shooting the deer. I also said the people broke the law in having the deer. Because of these 2 groups of people who chose not to follow the law, the deer is dead. Where did I say that killing the deer in front of the family was justified, when I said, in my first reply, that the police broke the law by shooting the deer?

          • ahughes798

            The constitution is not based on Judeo-Christian principals, it says so it the establishment clause. Our system of laws ARE based on Judeo-Xtian pricipals…murder is illegal, usury is illegal, etc. Incest is illegal, even though it says it’s okay in the Bible. I’m damn glad we’re overthrowing biblical “morality,” since that “morality” includes killing your neighbor if he works on the Sabbath, offering up your daughters as sex slaves, killing your children if they back-talk, and say…there was Adam and Eve in the beginning. They had two sons. Where did everybody else come from?

            This animal was hit by a car and “rescued” by this family. They chose to abandon common sense and the law, and somehow it’s the Game Wardens fault for these people breaking the law. Do you really fail to see absurd that thinking is?

            I do fail to see how absurd that is. This family acted as anyone in their situation with a heart would. The legal system of this country is obviously not set up with the best intentions towards animals. Want proof? Watch the video!

          • doucyet

            Want the law changed? Put down the computer and go to city hall. There’s one consistent theme here with most commenters, they think the law sucks. It might! But it’s the law as of now, get down to city hall and get it changed!! But that would take commitment and effort and so much easier to just bitch about it……….right!

          • Guy

            You might as well be asking for tit’s to grow on a goat ! Iphone’s are so much easer to use, demand no effort and don’t talk back, except when asked too !

          • Guy

            Better if they had taken the animal, 30 miles out of town, once healed, and released it to it’s fate ! That way God and Nature, would have decided it’s future, and not these kind hearted, but stupid people, who did instead ! Now ! It’s just some schmucks venison steak ! People are unhappy, The State has done it’s job and the smuck enjoyed it’s meal ! Lot of good all that did !

          • doucyet

            It could have been handled better, for sure.

      “Kim Mcgaughey killed this deer…………..Get it!”

      Exactly!

    • Guy

      And who made you the self described King Of The Freaking Hill !……………Get it!?

      • doucyet

        You assume much in your comments, do you have any meaningful thoughts? Dialog you know, the exchanging of ideas or positions on a subject other than sarcasm.

        • Guy

          Sure, and plenty of it. But would rather converse with someone who just as well “Dosen’t Get It” !

          • doucyet

            Not at all. I’d rather have a conversation with a critical thinker, someone with common sense and a cool demeanor.

          • Guy

            Well, I guess that leaves me out ! But, have at times, been called both, properly just not up to your high standards !

          • doucyet

            I doubt that leaves you out. Common sense these days seems to prove superior to a collage degree. I value truth above all, truth will allow one to see in a different light.
            Like, it’s true the Game Warden was dick for killing the deer, it’s also true that he was acting on the states behalf. And it’s true that the law in that state says one can’t own wild game without a permit. It’s also true that the state sucks because they extort at every opportunity……….
            Where does it all end?

          • Guy

            It dosen’t ever ! Nor will it, even when you think it should have, because you think you have escaped it, by drawing your last breath !
            Some, call that “Death & Taxes.” I prefer to call it reality and liken ourselves to the “Silly Goose,” who goes around thinking it has, by proclaiming itself free, with it’s honk’s to all that will bother to listen !

            I may be a fatalist, as some no doubt call me, but at least I know how the game is played, it’s rules, and how to bend some of thouse in my favor, realizing that they can be, but never broken.

            This I do “Get It,” The rest is just Smoke & Mirrors !

          • doucyet

            Break the ones that don’t land you in jail or cause you to spend your retirement fund.

          • Guy

            OL Burny ! Got my retirement fund years ago ! I make sure that my taxes and mortgage are payed on time. And now, I just sit at home and pound the keyboard !

            LOL ! Not really, but just funny as shit, except the part about Burny, because he did.

            Don’t ever worry about landing in jail, cause I don’t give em a reason to want to even bother with this old fool, who just smiles and waves as I go by !

  • Wolfgang A Barreto

    Is it legal to hunt game out of season ? Just a thought .

    An examination of a dead animal is called a necropsy not an autopsy.

  • BenMerca

    Sounds like they have a political problem… vote, and get the cretins out of office that allow this behavior. There is a reason why this country has moved to the right…it’s called apathy.

    • mtspace evolved

      FO REAL! especially in places like Ulysses, Kansas, where Mayor and City Councils were elected by 500 total votes and only 25% of registered voters, vote. The City Council negotiates contracts with cops in voters’ name. In Ferguson, Missouri, City Council members have been elected by 23 total votes.

      Question: Answer.

  • Timothy T Goodrich

    It’s time to start removing stupid laws from the books. Nothing from nature should be under any type of legislation and the laws should never have been written. Whether we’re talking about growing plants, gathering rainwater, or allowing wildlife the freedom to commune with us, it matters not because these things come from the law of nature, which supersedes the laws made by men to sate their greed for power, control and money.

    • permalink

      “It’s time to start removing stupid laws from the books”

      I agree w/ that. Then I can start eating the deer near me instead of seeing them run-over by traffic. Thanks buddy!

    • doucyet

      “It’s time to start removing stupid laws from the books.”

      Totally agree!!

      “Nothing from
      nature should be under any type of legislation and the laws should never
      have been written.”

      Does that mean that elephant hunters can kill with impunity whenever they want to without recourse?

      “Whether we’re talking about growing plants,
      gathering rainwater, or allowing wildlife the freedom to commune with
      us, it matters not because these things come from the law of nature,
      which supersedes the laws made by men to sate their greed for power,
      control and money.”

      Where is this utopia where you live? It sounds great, but it has not, does not and will not ever exist as long as man exists. He is evil and greedy by nature and laws must be written to control him (you and I) and that’s just the way it is.

      • mtspace evolved

        “Does that mean that elephant hunters can kill with impunity whenever they want to without recourse?” YES. Being treated with care and consideration is not an EARTH-GIVEN BIRTHRIGHT. “growing plants, collecting rainwater”…freedom to roam ARE EARTH-GIVEN BIRTHRIGHTS. the Nature of this Live System doesn’t go out of it’s way to make sure feelings don’t get hurt but did go out of its way to make DIRT SO DIRT DON’T HURT & SEEDS GROW IN IT. If we prove ourselves plague Earth will stop growing us aka food allergies, birth defects, tectonic plate shifts, microbes…

        • doucyet

          Put down the bong, there’s a real world out there…….

      • Guy

        It is widely known, that one of the biggest problems in Africa right now ! Is it’s own native populations, that are the ones who are responsible for the desquamation of it native wildlife populations, due to poaching for money ! It’s the Chinese who are the ones who pay for the Rhino Horns to be used in there perverted sex trade. Plus the locals hunting for bushmeat, doesn’t help any either.

        Some times, I think perhaps it would be better if we weren’t here at all, then just maybe that Utopia would have at least a chance !?

        • doucyet

          It’s a great concept……..utopia or paradise. We should only be allowed to view it from a far, given a visit we’d screw it up no doubt!

          • Guy

            Yep ! Huge Game Preserves, like planet wide, with us on the moon, who can just be the observer’s and a rather large sighn in between, saying “NO TRESPASSING!”

  • Guy

    I think the point of all of this, is that these moronic, robotic, knuckle dragging, idiots, with the self belief that god is on there side, because it’s sanctified by the State, have no more real concern for this animal, than I would in swatting a fly !

    I’m pretty sure, that lot’s of you here, can quote me chapter and verse on the legal rights of the State to do what they do. But you know what ? I really don’t give a turd, what you think, just as I don’t give a rats ass what these idiots with god on there side , who wear State Bandages think either !

    The facts are, this could have been handled 30 other different ways, other than shooting it in these folks front yard, and that you fail to see, or even recognize that, is what really fry’s my butt.

    Adolf Hitler, Chairman Mao, Mussolini, Idi Amin, Stalin, Reverend Jim Jones and Charles Manson, were all the same way too, with lot’s of followers, falling at there collective feet, all telling them what a gift to mankind and the world they were, untill things started going south, then what happened, well boy’s and girls, I am sure you can all tell me that story, but how many here actually believe it !? Unless you read it in some owners manual, while you call me a sheep

        How good of you to notice, that I can’t do either worth a shit !

        Point is, I’ve know it for a lifetime, so what’s it to you hotshot !?

        • permalink

          “so what’s it to you hotshot”

          How is that name-calling working out for you?

          Well for one, if you are going to comment about anything, you should at least take the time to see that you spell words right and use grammar correctly. Otherwise people will think you are an idiot, or a sheep as in your case.

          I am happy to admit my mistakes, but it appears you not so much… hence your a follower, not a leader (sheep).

    This is disgusting – gunning down a gentled deer with a limp, in front of the folks that saved her. Folks that would justify this are the lowest form of sewage suckers – this has nothing to do with keeping the peace or protecting anybody.

    Keep in mind it is perfectly legal to feed deer on your property in Kansas – at a minimum these assholes just poached a deer on private property.

    And this children, is why you don’t cooperate with LE…ever.

    I think I would seriously have a hard time not doing the same to these officers if that was my family. The things people in these agencies and positions feel they are entitled to do these days is getting out of hand. Way too many people wanting to control others in this world, disgusting.

  • Cowboy wannabe with authority fixation. Backward jerks… I grew up in Tennessee raising and slaughtering stock for our family. I also hunted for food, not trophy. My father, who would be 97 this year, was one of the best sportsmen I ever knew. He would have some words for these lowlife that I cannot print here. Unbelievable…

    And the LORD sent Nathan to David. He came to him and said to him, “There were two men in a certain city, the one rich and the other poor. The rich man had very many flocks and herds, but the poor man had nothing but one little ewe lamb, which he had bought. And he brought it up, and it grew up with him and with his children. It used to eat of his morsel and drink from his cup and lie in his arms, and it was like a daughter to him. Now there came a traveler to the rich man, and he was unwilling to take one of his own flock or herd to prepare for the guest who had come to him, but he took the poor man’s lamb and prepared it for the man who had come to him.” Then David’s anger was greatly kindled against the man, and he said to Nathan, “As the LORD lives, the man who has done this deserves to die, and he shall restore the lamb afourfold, because he did this thing, and because he had no pity.” – 2 SAMUEL 12

  • Iftheaccidentwill

    1:24 nails what’s wrong here and in a million other cop videos – “You guys make up your own rules”. What they don’t know about the law, they just make up as they go along. And by coincidence, what they make up almost invariably matches what their ego dictates.
