The old saying is TRUE! Baffling.
COUPLE RESCUE BABY DEER; FACE CHARGES: A couple in Connersville, Indiana who rescued an injured fawn said they could face jail time for the good deed. Jeff and Jennifer Counceller said they brought the injured baby deer -- dubbed Little Orphan Dani -- home and treated her wounds, then nursed her back to health for nearly two years. One day someone from the Indiana Department of Natural Resources came by and told them the state wanted to euthanize the deer because she was a threat to humans. Councellor explained, "I was devastated. I spent a year and several months nursing her into adulthood, getting to the point where she was able to go out on her own." The day Dani was scheduled to be euthanized she escaped from the Counceller home. The couple could face misdemeanor charges for unlawful possession of a deer which might mean jail time and/or fines up to $2,000. The Councellors maintain that they did the right thing, no matter what the law states. (UPI)
