POTTERVILLE, Mich. (AP) – Authorities say a person admitted that he killed a deer with a hammer in Eaton County after video of the incident was posted on social media.
The Division of Pure Assets says the 23-year-old man from Potterville was situated Wednesday night time, about an hour after an off-duty conservation officer was instructed concerning the video.
The suspect claimed he was making an attempt to ease the deer’s distress after a car-deer crash.
The person surrendered the partially butchered deer. The Eaton County prosecutor will evaluation the case for attainable fees.
