I’m not saying I’m the guilty party, because I’m not, but I had no idea, none at all, that it is against the law to cut the head off of an already dead deer.
A reward of $2,500 has been offered for the arrest and conviction of whoever decapitated five deer last month on Interstate 79 near Coraopolis.
The five deer carcasses were found in late October along the highway between Coraopolis and Neville Island. Investigators with the state Game Commission suspect the animals had been struck and killed in traffic, and someone came along and mutilated them.
1. More a question. WHY is it against the law to cut the head off of an already dead deer? I’m seriously asking. Before you get your PETA panties in a bunch (What does that mean?), I’m not saying I’m FOR the cutting off of heads of dead deer, I’m just wondering why it is illegal to cut the head off of a dead deer you find on the roadside. Educate me.
Illegally harming or possessing a dead deer also is poaching
How can you harm something that is already dead?
Do NOT comment, “Well how would you feel if someone harmed the corpse of your relative or dog?”
Deer are not people and deer are not pets. They are wild animals that are hunted and whose meat some eat and whose heads some hang on their walls.
3. I hate the sad looks my kid gives to the deer head hanging above the fireplace mantle in Cracker Barrel.
4. It’s a good thing I only chop the heads off of live pigeons.
5. I’m gonna sit here and wait for PETA to start emailing me again.
