Thank you for contacting my office regarding the situation with the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) involving the white-tailed deer in Connersville.

I agree with you that punishing well-meaning citizens doesn’t make sense at all, especially in light of jail time and a heavy fine.

Feb. 8, 2013, DNR dropped the charges against the couple who rescued the deer, but Governor Pence stated the DNR officer involved was only abiding by the law.

Thank you for letting me know your concern.

Best regards,

Mark Stoops
Indiana State Senator
