    ....for "acting disoriented in an urban environment"!

    The Scavenger : Oakland police chase and gun down 'Bambi'

    (with video)


    One of the officers was quoted as saying:
    "If we would have had more time...we would have gotten a warrant, dressed up in SWAT gear, shot the deer....and then planted drugs on it."

    (Sarcasm off)

    Reminiscent of the cougar shooting by Chicago's Finest a couple years ago on Chicago's northwest side... think they fired off several dozen rounds, hitting the cat about a dozen times. Seems like it never occurred to them to get some experts from any of the several local zoos to tranq the animal. :rolleyes:

    Baby dear, also known as a fawn when not trying to appeal to the bleeding hearts, taste really good. It's very tender meat.

    But how can that be? With the proper loads the .40 S&W creeps into .44 mag kinetics.

    why, if the are such bad shots, didn't they just walk up, after the shot that appeared to take out it's front legs, and put one in the head? I mean, the thing was cornered, and they couldn't get ONE good shot into a quick kill spot, even I could have got that thing in the head. jeez, it's a DEER, it's not like it's going to attack them. stupid, stupid, stupid

    oh, on the other hand, like jmichna said, couldn't they have gotten someone to tranq it? guess that never crossed their minds. stupid, stupid, stupid

    When this topic showed up under the last post column it was shortened to "Oakland Police shoot baby"

    kind of freaked me out...

    Same here. But I must admit, I'm still freaked out that even Oakland PD would do something this foolish.

    Their excuse is that they don't have any protocol to handle a deer situation. They have one for pitbull, but not deer. Here's a thought, Oakland PD; how about using that thing in your heads called a BRAIN! They had animal control there. All they had to do was tranquilize it and move it to the wilderness somewhere. That's it. And SEVEN shots to kill it? That's sad. They were more than close enough to take it out quickly, especially with a .40 caliber, even though I still feel they should have just tranq'ed the animal instead.

    I used to work on the west side of Austin, and I wish cops would kill every deer on sight in that area. They're a big nuisance and cause traffic accidents because people do stupid stuff trying to avoid hitting them.

    But, 7 shots is pathetic shooting and borderline inhumane. I think the first shots completely missed.

    but im pretty sure they didnt clean and eat this animal. that would have at least made it bearable.
