    KENOSHA, WI -- An animal shelter was swarmed with armed government agents after employees began caring for a baby deer. "It was like a SWAT team," shelter employee Ray Schulze said. Nine DNR agents and four sheriff's deputies performed a raid on the Society of St. Francis animal shelter. They had received two anonymous snitch calls to notify them that a baby deer was being cared for.

    The agents came prepared with aerial spy photographs of the animal shelter, perhaps taken with a drone, showing evidence that the baby deer had been walking in and out of the barn.

    A family had delivered the fawn to the shelter after it had been abandoned by its mother. However, the government says caring for wildlife is wrong. They began to search for the fawn to kill it.

    Schulze was startled when the agents returned with the fawn in a body bag and slung over an agent's shoulder.

    The deer had been scheduled to be delivered to a wildlife preserve in Illinois the following day. Not if the Department of Natural Resources has anything to say about it.

    "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," Schulze said. "I said, 'Why did you do that?' He said, 'That's our policy,' and I said, 'That's one hell of a policy.'"

    When asked by a reporter why the department didn't make a phone call before devoting massive resources to the raid, they likened it to a drug bust.

    "If a sheriff's department is going in to do a search warrant on a drug bust, they don't call them and ask them to voluntarily surrender their marijuana or whatever drug that they have before they show up," Niemeyer said.

    That deer was obviously part of an Al-Qaeda sleeper cell.

    I've got a similar story. Someone locally (in Vermont) was caring for an orphaned fawn and the Fish and Game agents broke into a locked screened-in porch when the owner wasn't home, took the deer, and shot it. Just happened recently, here's part of the newspaper article:

    "The department’s policy became public after Gresser had found a fawn in Marshfield in early June and taken it home to care for it; she said she had been told its mother was dead. In trying to figure out what to do with the baby deer, Gresser said, she discovered that if she contacted Fish and Wildlife, a warden would take the fawn and shoot it.

    Gresser said that when she was away from home for a couple of hours, a warden with Fish and Wildlife took the fawn off her back porch and left with it, later telling her that he shot the fawn."

    We can't profile so everyone must be inconvenienced. Cavity search granny but ignore or be afraid to connect the overt jihad dots.
    When the bad guy jihad bombers band together and pull off 10-15 Boston marathon like bombings at the same time you will be very happy to see the guys in this pic.
