When an Indiana couple discovered an injured baby white-tail deer, they couldn't bear the idea of the poor thing dying of its wounds. Jeff and Jennifer Counceller took the deer, named it Dani, in and nursed it back to health. The plan was to return it

They have my respects for caring for someone in need, I know that if it was a person that needed help they would have wanted Jeff and Jennifer Counceller to aid them.

At a time when our country is in a serious crises due to climate change, a failing economy, divisive government, wars, gun violence and so much more, I cannot believe that you are going to punish this couple for trying to save a baby deer. Seriously? Repeat that back to yourself and tell me, does that sound as ludicrous to you as it does to me?

Refuse to sign this one! This couple did wrong by the law and condemned this deer to a quick and terrible death by letting it "escape" after keeping it confined as a pet for 2 years.

The charge -- illegal possession of a whitetail deer -- stems from a law meant to target poachers

These people are heros.
I am fed up with the recent stupidity from America in relation to allowing and encouraging animals to be abused and hunted and on the other hand when people do a good deed and help save an animals life they are attacked by America's legal system.No wonder the USA is going down the drain fast.Terminate the employment of your stupid moronic incompetent decision makers.

So this is a country where vivisection is allowed, rodeos are allowed but saving a baby deer is against the law? Makes sense, why save a baby deer when you can either torture it in a lab or have fun torturing it in a rodeo. Disgusting and sad as well as sick and insane. This couple are heroes!
