Tame deer at Houston sanctuary beheaded
Nov 25th, 2008 | HOUSTON -- A tame deer known as Mr. Buck has been found
beheaded at a wildlife sanctuary in Houston.
The remains of the child-friendly deer were discovered Tuesday at Bear Creek
Pioneers Park. A bloodhound was used to try to track the killer.
Harris County Commissioner Steve Radack says anyone who attacks an animal in
captivity "is just the lowest of the low."
Authorities say someone cut through a remote fence to reach the animal,
taking the deer's head and antlers. The carcass was left behind.
Taxidermy shops in the Houston area were being advised about the crime.
Charges including felony animal cruelty and poaching could be pursued
against any suspects.
