Truly shocking the militarization of local law enforcement.

They get a tip that “OH GOD” the local shelter has a baby deer

Get several days surveillance.

Send in a SWAT team – take cameras away delete film – and shoot the deer.

All in the name of “PUBLIC SAFETY”

I don’t live in the US but have to comment – isn’t all that excessive “legal effort” a waste of tax payers’ money? Making things worse instead of better at greater cost? Do local law enforcement really have that much budget and resources to play with during a time of budget deficits across so many states? Seriously. Over a rescued baby deer.

redSLED … I think it is symptomatic of the post-9-11 society we live in. Everything, in the name of ‘security’, is tighter now, and all levels of law enforcement are becoming more militaristic.

It isn’t that we have ”... that much budget and resources …”. In actuality governmental agencies in here Wisconsin are financially strapped like just about every place else in the U.S.

There must be a reason for this, but I’ll be damned if I can figure out how they would justify this ridiculous behavior.

The comments below that article are priceless… rather than blaming the people they elected to run their state they blame people in Washington who had nothing to do with it.

Is the U.S. changing from the land of the free to the land of rampant paranoia where it needs
a glorified swat team and a military operation to inspect an animal shelter.

I think you guys are over reacting.

There they were… Our heroes. Fully clad in burdensome assault gear. It is a thankless task these heroes performed: Protecting us from crazed wildlife hoarders.

If one person or group can bottle feed a fawn, then everyone can.

Is that the type of society you want to live in? A society where humans can freely shelter other creatures?

Well I, for one will not tolerate such dissension. You’re with us, or you’re with the enemy.

We need to fight them in the animal shelters so we don’t have to fight them in our neighborhoods.

These evil doers hate us for our freedom. They are simply trying to subvert the rule of law, and convert us into an animal sheltering society.

If you don’t support police raids for every occurrence, the evil doers win.

I wonder if this has anything to do with Chronic Wasting Disease?

The Kenosha area is in a known CWD zone, both in captive and free-ranging populations of the deer herd.

Nonetheless, there is still no excuse for this kind of behavior.
