Indiana couple that rescued fawn facing charges

January 30, 2013 at 05:00 PM

The Associated Press

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Gov. Mike Pence is reviewing charges filed against a Connersville couple that rescued a dying fawn three years ago.

News of the rescue by Jeff and Jennifer Counceller and subsequent prosecution sought by the Indiana Department of Natural Resources has sparked outrage inside and out of the Statehouse.

Pence said Wednesday he believed conservation officers properly followed state law barring residents from keeping wild animals. But he added that Indiana residents clearly care for animals and has asked DNR officials for a briefing.

The Councellers’ have been charged with illegal possession of a white-tail deer and face up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.

State lawmakers including Republican Sen. Brent Steele say they have asked DNR for answers but have yet to receive a response.
