Women face fine for taking dead deer

Two women in the Fox Valley face hefty fines for stealing a dead deer.

A Menasha man bagged an 8-point buck in November and showed it off at a bar.

Two women argued with him in the bar, then later took the deer from his truck and drove it over as a prank.

“That’s where their prank kind of went awry,” Department of Natural Resources Conservation Warden Ryan Propson said. “They thought it was just going to be a prank. They ended up leaving and driving a couple of blocks and realizing they were dragging this deer along with them.”

The women called a male friend to help them throw the deer into a river.

DNR officials issued the women tickets for larceny of wild game, a fine of more than $2000 each.
