week about a deer wandering near Hawkins Road neighborhoods with a plastic jack-o’-lantern
stuck on its head.
We started receiving calls on Monday about this deer, but
responding officers couldn’t get close to it,” said Deputy Chief Frankie Gray.
“We were hoping that we wouldn’t have to destroy it,” Gray
But leprechauns were watching over this particular Bambi when another call came in
Police Sgt. Johnny Ferguson responded to the call, but the young buck, partly blinded
by the plastic container, was elusive.
Gray and Capt. Rick Stalder decided to “go and have a look before making the decision
to shoot the animal.”
