[DNR] DNR to request dismissal of charges in deer case
Start Date: 2/1/2013Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/1/2013End Time: 12:00 AM
Event Description

The Department of Natural Resources today will ask that the charges be dismissed against a Connersville couple for illegal taking of a deer.

After reviewing the matter, Gov. Mike Pence asked the DNR to reevaluate the case. As a result of the governor’s request, the DNR has re-examined the case and is seeking dismissal of the charges.

The case involves a Connersville couple – Jeff and Jennifer Counceller – who took in a fawn deer in 2010 they said was injured. The couple was told at that time by an Indiana Conservation Officer from the DNR that it is illegal to possess a wild animal without a permit and the best option was to return the fawn to a wooded location.

They did not, and last summer they were found to still have the deer but no DNR permit authorizing them to possess it.

The case was turned over to the Fayette County prosecutor.
