Men could be fined for putting T-shirt on deer

OAK CREEK, Wis. — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says five men could be fined for dressing a deer — only this has nothing to do with hunting.

A YouTube video shows the men setting up an elaborate trap, then wrestling with a struggling deer as they put a yellow T-shirt on the animal. The men are laughing as the deer eventually runs away in Oak Creek.

DNR warden Kaitlin Kernosky says “it’s tough to see someone act like that toward a wild animal.” The DNR says the men in the video have been identified and could face a fine of at least $300 each.

Local residents have reported seeing the deer. Only part of the shirt remains around its neck. The video has been taken off YouTube.
