Hispanics?

They are in a world of poop no matter what race.

Killing deer that will eat out of your hand.

Those two don't need to be put in jail, but buried under the jail. Why would you kill something that eats out of your hand. The key deer are so small there's not enough meat to make it worth the effort. Makes no sense at all.

Those things stay so overpopulated it would be good to maintain a more healthy number of animals. Would be little or no sport in hunting them though. They are too cute and tame for their own good.

Three endangered Key deer rescued
Early Sunday morning, a car with a broken taillight was pulled over by a Monroe County Sheriff's deputy. He contacted us when he discovered endangered Key deer bound with heavy twine in the vehicle. When our officer arrived on scene, he found two struggling hogtied Key deer in the back seat and another in the trunk of the car. Backup arrived along with a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officer and they worked quickly to document the scene, gather evidence, safely untie and evaluate the endangered animals. In order to prevent further stress to the deer, all three were released back into the wild. Two of the deer ran off, but wellness checks are now being conducted on the third, as its leg appears to be injured. The two men in the vehicle were arrested on multiple charges, including felonies and misdemeanors for injuring an endangered species, take of deer out of season and animal cruelty. They were booked into Monroe County Jail.

Thanks to Monroe County Sheriff's Office Deputy Hopp, FWC Officer Wagner, Officer Rubenstein and Lieutenant Haney, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Officer Brierley for the rescue!

At 18 and 23, they are bound for a life of criminal activity. I hope the judge throws the book at them and executes them with a .22 lr to save the tax payers some money. If not, I hope they go to jail for a very long time, even though it will cost the tax payers $70,000/ year to house these scum sucking low lives.

Executed or life in prison for taking three deer that were subsequently released? Jees! Depending on circumstances and motive, I would expect they loose hunting license, have probably had car taken away pending court date, get some jail time, a substantial fine, and will go on record as felony.

The judicial system may throw the book at them, but it will still fail us with these "lost causes".... Freaking weirdos.

At their ages, when they show an indiference for the lives of animals, historically and statistically, they will go on to harm innocent people: children, women, elderly...anyone they think they can "over power"... profiling is not a bad thing...the media has portrayed profiling as racist...however, its called reality. These two will go on in their lives to hurt other living creatures and humans. Guarantee it... history does not lie. They can not be rehabilitated.

Prolly to be sold as an exotic pet. Plot may thicken.

I know that LTK is technically Key Deer territory but I really wish they had driven the deer back over the bridge onto BPK before they released them!
Hopefully those 2 young men will learn a lesson and whatever becomes of them is better than what Syndgoose predicts.
