Residents of House Springs, Missouri said they loved watching the rare albino deer quietly roaming in their neighborhood. Sadly that all came to an end on Tuesday when a hunter shot and killed the deer on Erin Meadow Road.
According to US News, the Missouri Conservation Department is investigating what happened – not because it’s illegal to kill a deer, but because the hunter was so close to homes and a middle school. State law prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 300 feet of a school. At the location the deer was killed was also just across the street from homes. Had a stray bullet ricocheted, could someone have been shot, wounded or killed?
At this time there doesn’t seem as if the hunter violated any county ordinances, however the investigation has not been completed.
As for the innocent deer, why would anyone want to kill something that small, that rare, that beautiful and so utterly defenseless?
Rest in peace little one.
