If this story made you as angry as it made me, perhaps you wanted to leave a rage-y, gif-filled comment.
Why hide your outrage in a forum where no one responsible for this shitty debacle will ever see it? Call or email the Wisconsin DNR now and tell them how you feel!
1. Tell this agency that their actions were sick and reprehensible. Shame them for killing an innocent baby animal, who was a day away from joining a rehabilitation facility.
2. Tell them that their explanations/justifications for needing THIRTEEN armed agents to raid a no-kill shelter and murder a fawn are BULLSHIT. Tell them no one is stupid enough to believe that is necessary.
3. Demand the resignation/termination of those involved in planning this shoddy debacle.
Again, here's their email contact http://dnr.wi.gov/contact/
Seriously, it's time to send a message.
UPDATE: Here is a totally shitty response from the shitty Bambi-murdering DNR, via LittleMissPaige, who received this just now in response to her complaint:
Thank you for your feedback. Last week our warden staff had the difficult and emotional job of removing a fawn that was illegally taken out of the wild and into captivity. None of our staff take joy in these situations. The department does the best it can to educate the public about keeping wild animals in the wild. In the end, we are charged by the citizens of Wisconsin to carry out state laws mandated by the legislature. It is a responsibility we take very seriously. We don’t have the ability to pick and choose which laws to enforce. Our staff took precautions to keep everyone safe as they executed the required search warrant. We are always very empathetic to those involved in these situations and understand how difficult they are to all who are involved.
We thank you for your interest in Wisconsin's Natural Resources. If you have any other questions please feel free to contact us via phone or email below. We are available 7 days a week from 7am to 10pm. You can also try our online chat feature available from 7am to 9:45pm. Visit our website at dnr.wi.gov
Hey Caity! Gurl. How you doin'? Just wondering. What the fuck are you smoking? I mean, I know it's Friday, so you GOT to be getting your shit on. Because nowhere in this bullshit fucking bullshit did you actually explain WHY IN THE FUCK YOUR AGENCY NEEDS 13 ARMED GUARDS TO DO THIS?
These people can write all the explanatory letters they want. Their shit still stinks. And they know it.
UPDATE #2 There is also a Change.org petition, if you guys are so inclined.
And, this is the contact info for Kenosha County Board of Supervisors. You can directly ask them to demand an investigation into the actions of the DNR.
