Delivering baby deer lands man in hot water
MONCTON, N.B.–A man who delivered a baby deer in New Brunswick after watching a truck kill its mother is now under investigation for potentially breaking the law.
Under New Brunswick law, it is illegal to take an orphaned animal home and care for it without a permit. Depending on the outcome of the investigation, Van-Til could face charges under the Fish and Wildlife Act.
Officials said Van-Til should have called the Department of Natural Resources or the RCMP at the start and let them handle the matter.
