Nine “armed to the teeth” SWAT-like agents of the State of Wisconsin recently stormed animal shelter on the Wisconsin-Illinois border in order to abduct and kill a baby deer named “Giggles,” who was in the shelter because she had no parents.
This one ranks up there with the Ohio cop who shot five kittens to death, in the presence of children.
The Society of St. Francis (sounds scary already), a no-kill shelter, informed the armed agents that there was no need to kill Giggles, as she was not only not “dangerous,” which the agents were claiming, but she was also scheduled to be transferred to a nature reserve the next day.
Too bad, said Wisconsin officials. So they threw Giggles in a body bag, threw her over their shoulder, and killed her.
Oh, and the fawn was named Giggles because when she made a little noise, it sounded like laughter.
What is wrong with people?
Possibly even more pathetic was the heartless, and absurd, excuse given by Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources supervisor Jennifer Niemeyer, when asked why they couldn’t have just phoned the shelter and resolved the entire situation without killing the fawn:
“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 they have.”
Well, yes. If Giggles were heroin, instead of an adorable baby deer, and if the Society of St. Francis were Al Qaeda, instead of a no-kill shelter named after a saint, then Jennifer Niemeyer would be correct, you would not want to phone them first.
Below is an image of the dangerous fugitive “Giggles” that Jennifer Niemeyer and her brave colleagues at the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources threw in a body bag and killed.
Guess thanks to Jennifer and her buddies at the Wisconsin DNR we can cancel that terror alert now.
