This incident is pretty bizarre, but we must find a way to defend this little old lady, Dorothy Richardson, 76,who killed a fawn on her property. She lives alone and the fawn looked volatile and wild to her.
She said her eyes connected with his and he looked wild. She didn’t know if he might jump and bite her head off. Her neighbor, Christopher Grueber is a councilman for Euclid, their suburban district outside of Cleveland.
He said the deer was approximately 25 pounds and maybe two feet tall. He thinks it was a senseless act.
The town is fast siding with Grueber and there are charges mounting against the woman for her actions.
If convicted, she could get up to 60 days in jail.
