Do you remember the part of the Disney classic ‘Bambi’ where 13 heavily armed officers swarm into the forest to shoot and kill him?

Me either.

But something similar happened recently in Wisconsin, reports The Washington Times.

The baby deer, named ‘Giggles’ because she was a clear threat to society, had been dropped off at a Kenosha, Wisc., no-kill animal shelter by a family that was concerned the woodland creature had been abandoned by its mother.

A worker at the shelter was shocked when nine Department of Natural Resources agents and four deputies bristling with guns invaded and shot Giggles and took her out in a body bag.

“I said the deer is scheduled to go to the wildlife reserve the next day,” Ray Schulze told TV station WISN 12. “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. I said, ‘Why did you do that?’ He said, ‘That’s our policy,’ and I said, ‘That’s one hell of a policy.’”

It’s against the law, clearly, to “possess” wildlife in Wisconsin.

DNR spokescreep Jennifer Niemeyer told the TV station wild animals must be euthanized because of the potential danger.

The animal shelter plans to sue.

“They went way over the top for a little, tiny, baby deer,” said the shelter president.

Employer Web snooping leads to police visit

Spying is the new fad, and it’s not just the government and your creepy neighbor with the telescope getting in on the fun.

Thursday, a New York blogger threw fuel on the fires of paranoia by alleging the government sent agents from a “joint terrorism task force” to her home a few weeks after she and her husband searched for “pressure cookers” and “backpacks” on Google.

The blogger, Michele Catalano, complained in her blog that her Internet search history was being perused by Edward Snowden’s former pals and she was “scared. And not of the right things.”

She had the last part right. The government had actually been tipped off by her husband’s former employer, not by looking through hoarded data. Seems the husband, Todd Pinnell, was searching for pressure cookers and backpacks instead of working on “security cameras,” and his employers found that suspicious.

The Suffolk County Police Department was forced to issue a press release to douse rampant Internet speculation that the feds were shoulder-surfing humanity.

Let this be a lesson: Not working while at work leads to trouble.

Here’s some more interesting links I ran across in my daily tour of the Interwebs:

The Nanny State-Military-Industrial Complex.

And while we’re at it, how about that story earlier about the small Georgia town that bought up military surplus of boats and SCUBA gear when the deepest water in that town is a small creek? Not all of our police departments need tanks, assault & sniper rifles, and all the other military surplus grants provide. It’s crazy! We have heavily equipped, military-style police departments all over the country now. That might make those perpetually afraid of terrorism feel safe, but how safe are we from our own governments??

I suppose now I’ve tripped PRISM and should be expecting the Stasi….sorry, the police to be at my house when I come home.

Baby deer? Has the noun “fawn” been expunged from the language?

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is the Mad Cow disease of deer and is a real problem in the Cheese State. What the DNR did is the proper procedure and is required to ensure a healthy herd. It sounds awful what happened, but the Good Samaritan should have left the wildlife alone to begin with. The doe was probably around and if she was not, let nature take it’s course. Coyotes have to eat too.

Me either? You mean neither, no?

It was reported that the police took the cell phone of one of the staffers and deleted the photographs he took of the raid. That’s illegal, unconstitutional, and just plain wrong.

Such blatant abuse of power and disregard for the first amendment. The constitution does not apply if you’ve got a badge and a gun.

Bubba:

For all we know that was a farm-raised deer that just got loose.

All the laws around wildlife do not apply if it’s farm raised, and unless the cops knew for sure where the deer came from, they had no right to round up all the shelter workers and bag Bambi. The fact that they confiscated and deleted the cell phone photos from one of the workers tells me they knew they were just being thugs about it.

I can say one thing and they can delete my comment but they wont delete my thinking and praying for it. I hope each one who had a hand in the slaughter of this tiny little angel dies as horrific a death. We need to rid the world of human trash like them.

It’s no wonder the only people who attend the funerals of cops killed in the line of duty are other cops.

Well, this is the America you all obviously wanted. I mean you kept voting for democrats and republicans while third party candidates (and Ron Paul) kept bringing up the growing police state, surveillance state, prison-industrial complex, out of control government, etc. You have always had a chance to do something to go in a different direction, but you mistakenly believed that either the democrats or the republicans were the different direction when in fact they have both been headed in the SAME direction on this issue (with of course the exception of a few true patriots from both sides of the aisle). So what are you going to do about it? Hope the republicans will fix it? LOL. Hope the democrats will actually carry through with their so-called support of civil liberties? Seriously?? LOL.

Diane .. You need to grow up. There are states that allow citizens to kill deer to control the population. That deer meat is then given to food banks and shelters to feed the homeless and poor. Thousands of deer die every year jumping in front of vehicles, killing people in the process. Bets are you place more value on this baby deer’s life than you do your upcoming gay baby. Diane obviously has a perpetual “deer in headlights” look on her face.

If you keep up with local news coverage from around the country, this same thing happens to unarmed humans all the time. Many of them have handicaps, mental disorders, or otherwise don’t “comply” immediately with the militarized forces that have now taken over local police departments. It is no longer “to serve and protect” but rather “comply or we kill you” that has become the motto of local police forces across this nation. Sad but true.

The deer was wearing a hoodie and carrying tea and a bag of skittles at the time.

The “tory” enemy we Black and White “whigs” fought in 1776 is but another name of “the real Anti-Christ” “engine for enslaving mankind” the Creator allowed us to escape in fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy of our True Zion, whose administrative cults ran its “Wall Street of slavery” for over 2,000 years, the satanically twinned Talmud/papist pedophile faction which now controls Washington after nailing its calling card to the front wall of the U.S. House, the Fasces, after America’s doing business with their Big Slavery was made illegal during the Jefferson Administration.

Fascism is upon us in the anti-Constitution debt bondage fiat money papal banker Rothschild/Rockefeller Fed Scam Fifth Column with its obligatory “terror theater” false flags, assassinations, false wars, traitors in high office, Big Pharma, and dozens of Mossad mechanics arrested with explosives near the World Trade Center on 9/11.

Whig v. tory is G-d v. Satan, then, now, and forever.

It’s a sad situation for the deer. If the family had just left it where it was, it would still be alive. Mother deer usually leave their fawn sitting by itself in the grass for hours at a time while the mother forages. Such deer have not been “abandoned”. In this day and age without large predators, the only way a mother deer would not come back is if a human hunter shot it. So if you’re not in an area where there’s hunting, the mother deer is 100% coming back. Leave the baby deer where it is!
