Armed Agents Raid Animal Shelter to Execute Baby Deer

Cop Block

Two weeks ago, animal shelter employee Ray Schulze was working in the barn at the Society of St. Francis on the Kenosha-Illinois border when a swarm of squad cars arrived and officers unloaded with a search warrant.

There were nine DNR agents and four deputy sheriffs, and they were all armed to the teeth; Schulze said, “It was like a SWAT team.”  

The focus of their search was a baby fawn brought there by an Illinois family who was worried she had been abandoned by her mother.

“When it made a little noise, it sounded like it was laughing,” Schulze said.

Schulze videotaped the fawn that they named Giggles during the two weeks she was there.

The Department of Natural Resources began investigating after two anonymous calls reporting a baby deer at the no-kill shelter.

The warden drafted an affidavit for the search warrant, complete with aerial photos in which he described getting himself into a position where he was able to see the fawn going in and out of the barn.

Agents told staff they came to seize the deer because Wisconsin law forbids the possession of wildlife.

Schulze told the agents that the deer was scheduled to go to a wildlife reserve in Illinois that allows the rehabilitation of deer the next day.

Still, Schulze said, agents corralled workers near the picnic area and then set out in search of the fawn.

“I was thinking in my mind they were going to take the deer and take it to a wildlife shelter, and here they come carrying the baby deer over their shoulder. She was in a body bag,” Schulze said. “I said, ‘Why did you do that?’ He said, ‘That’s our policy,’ and I said, ‘That’s one hell of a policy.’”

Supervisor Jennifer Niemeyer from The Department of Natural Resources said the law requires the DNR agents to euthanize animals like Giggles because of the potential for disease and danger to humans.

“Could you have made a phone call before showing up? I mean, that’s a lot of resources,” investigative reporter Colleen Henry asked.

In an attempt to justify the waste of taxpayer money to execute a baby deer, Niemeyer refers to another atrocity, “If a sheriff’s department is going in to do a search warrant on a drug bust, they don’t call them and ask them to voluntarily surrender their marijuana or whatever drug that they have before they show up.”

Niemeyer denied agents killed Giggles at the shelter, saying they tranquilized her and then euthanized her off-site.

Shelter president Cindy Schultz, who plans to sue the DNR for removing Giggles with not so much as a court hearing, said, “I don’t care where they would have killed her, it would have been wrong.” She also questioned what such an operation costs taxpayers.

Schulze said he has nightmares about the baby deer raid. He hasn’t moved her feed bowl or baby bottle.

The DNR told WISN 12 News despite the allegations outlined in its search warrant, it will file no charges against the shelter.

In certain circumstances, Wisconsin allows organizations to house wild deer, but only with a state-issued permit. In other words, all of this nonsense was not about the “potential for disease and danger to humans,” it was about sheltering the baby deer without begging for permission first.

I wonder how many of the agents involved felt good enough about what they did to go home and tell their spouses and children that they executed an innocent, harmless baby deer – one who was less than 24 hours away from being transported to a wildlife reserve.

  1. W in THE holy F?? I truly despise animal haters!!

    A swat team to kill an innocent fawn? All to inflate the ego or what? What harm was the fawn presenting to it’s killers??

    . . .

    1. They can’t take any chances the eco-terrorists at the no-kill animal shelter will want to shoot it out with the coppers. lol

      Or maybe they were concerned the shelter people would flush the deer down the toilet before the cops could enter the premises?

    1. Yeah, it only took seven fbi guys to kill that tsarnov guy in his own home. They are costing the taxpayer too much money, they should be able to kill innocents with no more than 2 appointed killers.

  2. you have to wonder, if these monsters will, do the same to children some day ….for the reason ” they might carry some disease ”

    blame the County Sheriff, first! If he/she….is no more decent than that, such a person should be thrown out of office never to return…throw the person out

  3. I’m sure that Bambi was a terriost threat to the people of Ill. there can be no other explanition for this kind of force against a little Bambi.Yea right,These animals in the pd are the worst kind of scum.Maybe we should go to their house and remove them by force and give them the same treatment because they they have a disease of the brain.I’ts called opticalrectalitis.Definition; you have your head so far up your a$$ you can’t see daylight.

    1. 9 times out of 10 people reporting anything results in someone or an animal dying. Do not call the Police for anything it will become deadly.

  4. Every department in the us government has a swat team staffed with fools of low IQ. America is a police state, this is rediculous. All violations of federal laws require a shoot to kill order. thank god I live in Germany

  5. Is America sinking into depravity, cruelty, and insane behavior.??
    Hopefully there’s a special place in Hell that’s been set aside for these monsters.

    1. “Sinking into depravity, cruelty, and insane behavior.?”?

      I’m guessing you’re reasonably young so you can’t compare the America that used to exist to the abomination that wears the name now.
      Of course, it’s to be expected, I guess. Studies show that 4% of the population is sociopathic – that’s 12 million in the USA. And how do we screen our elections to weed out these dangerous sociopaths? We vote for whoever is willing to spend the most money and lies the best to achieve their desired position of power.
      Add to that the controlled media which reduces high crimes and treason to ‘scandals’, and we’ve got the perfect playing field for the lowest forms of psychopath to step up and enjoy the carnage.
      It’s gonna get a lot worse before it gets better.

  6. You don’t understand, thats an Al-Qaeda baby deer. All her beauty and innocence is cover for a major terrorist act agains Murika. Those brave souls that killed her are heroes and they put their own lives on the line to protect Murikans. The NSA caught her admitting the deed through her emails to Osama bin Deer.

  7. This is against everything the Wisconsin Dept. of Natural Resources(WDNR) is all about. To protect wildlife and the lives of animals its that easy.
    Looks like the WDNR exec. management needs to be investigated by a grand jury. I’ve always supported the WDNR but when they violate the purpose of the charter of protect wildlife animal lives. Time for a overhaul of exec. management and supervisor’s all they want is to kill animals it’s just criminally wrong. They should be terminated no pension by if the grand jury finds at fault all who approves of these actions against wildlife.
    I will pray for justice looks like the trust of WDNR to protect wildlife is gone.
    Sad time for wildlife in Wisconsin

  8. These knuckle dragging scum, straight out of the loins of hell, sure spent a ton of money to execute Bambi. These cowardly scumbags have had such a good time, they might spare your Yorkshire terrier during there next encounter.

  9. Those f#@king assholes probably did what Jimbo on South Park does when he goes hunting, yells “It’s coming right for us” and then blasts away, on the TV it is a bit of a giggle that Parker and Stone have nailed perfectly, the shoot to kill mentality of any whackjob with a gun. The fact they have badges will help identify them as the enemy when people have had a gutful and start exterminating them with extreme prejudice.

  10. Because Bambi had 4 legs, they thought it was a dog and the whole police squad came down to shoot it.

  11. Bunch of f-n liars, who had the biological suits on if the wildlife posed that much of a threat to humans ,none of them.

  12. the only threat to humans, are other humans like these in the video, if you would even call them that. These people espically the woman spokesperson have no heart, no soul and are dead and do not even know it.
