Trooper the deer is safe

For almost a year, the fight was on to allow Carol Deyo to keep Trooper, the deer she had cared for since his leg was sliced off by a hay cutter. The former veterinary technician also was caring for a deer named Patch and four raccoons.

After several postponed court dates, on Monday Saving Trooper announced the good news on their Facebook page:

“I just finished talking with the Governors office and ODNR and they say there is an agreement with Carol Deyo. All charges are to be dropped and Carol gets to keep the animals. She is not to take any more wildlife in the future.”

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) had charged Deyo with two counts of possessing wild animals -- one count for the two deer and another count for the raccoons. If Deyo had been convicted, the animals would have been killed.
