On Beyond "WTF? of the Day"

Armed agents raid animal shelter for baby deer | News - WISN Home Executive Summary: A no-kill animal shelter in Wisconsin took possession of a fawn, because the people dropping it off said it had lost it's mother.

It is against the law in The Badger State to have a "wild" animal as a pet (!), and somebody -- two somebodys, in fact -- called The Law about the no-kill shelter, which was in the process of transferring Giggles the Fawn (Honest to Dave Barry, I am not making this up!) to  a wildlife rehab center.The Law  posse'd up a posse of NINE woods cops and four County Mounties, who
came prepared with aerial spy photographs of the animal shelter, perhaps taken with a drone, showing evidence that the baby deer had been walking in and out of the barn.

They rounded up all the people, and went and found and shot Giggles the Fawn.

Because protesting society from the danger that is presented by baby deers, who might have diseases and stuff, and you can't just call and say "Hey, do you have a baby deer, 'cuz that's illegal and stuff", is just like raiding a meth lab:
"If a sheriff's department is going in to do a search warrant on a drug bust, they don't call them and ask them to voluntarily surrender their marijuana or whatever drug that they have before they show up," Niemeyer said.
Slightly edited to make the "Executive Summary" make a little more sense...
