Clinton man gets probation in deer deaths

March 08, 2012 at 08:26 AM

CLINTON—A judge in central Illinois has sentenced a 22-year-old man to 24 months of probation and 280 hours of public service for killing seven white tail deer by running them down with a vehicle.

So it’s ok to run down and kill seven deer? I don’t know what he was driving, But should of lost his driver’s Lic. for a few years also. It’s sick people like this that goes on to do greater dammage in the future. I don’t know who the judge was, But this is an insult to all of us who reside in Illinois, Whether you are a hunter or not.

They dropped 45 other offences against him because he cooperated? Remember 7 is what they found not all the rest they couldnt finish off and got away. I am a hunter and i am still in disbelief on how the state can spend so much money and waste so much time on the investigation just to drop all but 1 small offence. This is a disgrace to our DNR. This state is a joke!
