    Man charged for hitting deer in fast food parking lot

    A Crestview man was charged with taking a deer by an illegal method after a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer learned that he had struck and killed a deer in the parking lot of a Crestview fast food restaurant, according to FWC’s weekly report.

    A witness reported seeing the man “intentionally” run over the deer, stop and look at it and then drive away. The occupants of another truck at the same restaurant picked up the deer and drove away. The witness followed the second truck and called in the complaint.

    A woman in the home where the officers were headed heard her address on the scanner. The two individuals then dumped the deer in a wooded area. When questioned by the officer, they first said they didn’t want the deer to be wasted. Later, they gave the name of the individual who ran the animal over.

    The deer was photographed as evidence. The two who took the deer were issued written warnings for willful and wanton waste of wildlife

    :rofl:

    If you hit it on purpose and tried to take it home, that would be illegal in alot of states not allowed to take roadkill.

    friend of my family hit an elk with his truck, so he figured he might as well get some meat out of it and pulled out his kit to clean it. F&G pulled up and took the elk and gave the guy a ticket. Ouch.

    Personally I think if you hit the thing by accident you should get to eat it.

    In Wisconsin, if you hit a deer, it's yours. And if you don't take it, I'm pretty sure it's first come first served. :rofl:

    There are so many deer around my neighborhood, at night it can be hard to avoid them at times. I've never hit one, but they will get right in your way on the slow neighborhood streets. They usually run off when you honk at them, but I had one that I needed to get out of my car and start walking toward it before it decided it needed to leave the road.

    Yes you are

    The witness saw them drive away, she did not see them drove away.
