... I work in the animal medicine/welfare field and there are bucket loads of data that indicate people who perpetrate acts of violence against animals usually have a history, or will have one.
Whoa, whoa, whoa, the data your citing in no way correlates to what this woman did. A majority of those acts of violence tend to be animal torture or cruelty by teens, kids, and young adults that then manifests itself in later life in other ways. Let's not throw her into that group, because what she did isn't the same - your attempt to link her to such is disingenuous at best.
And it is a stretch to say that because she can kill a deer, she then has enough anger issues to go after someone's child. Or that she has a hidden history. Nobody on this site has enough information about the lady to make those assumptions.
She discovered a fawn in her flower bed. Curled up, spots, big brown eyes, the works.
Would you let her baby-sit or dog- sit for you knowing she clubbed a fawn to death?

P.S. When you see animals talking in the movies, that's not real.
...I have never, ever talked to, met someone, or heard about anyone who no matter how big a deer problem they were having expressed a desire to, or threatened to, club a fawn to death. Now there sure is first time for everything, but at the very least that's one hard-core granny. You don't want to throw her in to that group? Okay, but I'm sorry IMO we can't leave her in the "normal" group either. It just isn't a normal response. Make no mistake I'm not hand wringing for the fawn, I am looking at the act.

She killed a deer. We all kill deer. Dead is dead. It was most likely a swift kill. Does the device of death cause the drama??? I though we were all past worrying about the device used to kill deer so long as it killed them?
The story said "But some neighbors said that the outrage is overblown and that details of the incident have been exaggerated."
I tend to agree. Give here a fine for killing a deer out of season and be done with it.
Then make the fine a good one, at least as severe as they would charge someone for poaching. Deer are protected animals and killing out of season in addition to it being a harmless fawn is something that shouldn't be taken lightly. As hunters if we screw up and do something illegal even if it's not intentional the game warden comes down on us hard so why let her get away with something that was obviously intentional.
