Jamestown resident cited for keeping deer in the house

JAMESTOWN, NY-A whitetail deer fawn is back where it belongs after it was discovered living on the 2nd floor of a home in Jamestown.

Officer Jerry Kinney, with the State Department of Environmental Conservation, went to the home after getting a complaint that someone was harboring the animal. The resident said he'd been told he could keep the fawn for up to six weeks before releasing it.

The resident was told that that information was incorrect. Officer Kinney took the deer, which was found to be in good health, and released it back into the wild.

The resident was given a ticket for illegal possession of protected wildlife.
