Detroit man serves time for keeping live deer in trunk

The Associated Press

SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A man is out of jail after serving a 10-day sentence for putting an injured deer in the trunk of his car and keeping it there for more than eight hours before taking it to a butcher shop when it was still alive.

The butcher called police who told him to euthanize the animal. The butcher then called the Maine Warden Service.

The Morning Sentinel says that on April 3, 52-year-old David Charrier of Detroit drove past a crash scene in which a deer had been hit by another vehicle and it lay in the road.

Somerset County District Attorney Evert Fowle says Charrier took the deer and kept it for several hours.

Charrier pleaded guilty last month to cruelty to animals and other charges.
