Cathy Stepp vs. Bambi: Round 2 - Overkill

The story of a DNR raid on a wildlife shelter in which no less than 13 officials needlessly killed a young fawn is not only disgusting but has now gone national, appearing in the Washington Times:
Two weeks ago, Ray Schulze was working in a barn at the Society of St. Francis no-kill animal shelter in Kenosha, Wis., when officials swarmed the shelter with a search warrant.

“[There were] nine [Department of Natural Resources] agents and four deputy sheriffs, and they were all armed to the teeth,” Mr. Schulze told WISN 12. “It was like a SWAT team.”

The agents were there to retrieve a baby deer named Giggles that was dropped off by a family worried she had been abandoned by her mother, the station reported. Wisconsin law forbids the possession of wildlife.

“I said the deer is scheduled to go to the wildlife reserve the next day,” Mr. Schulze told the station. “I was thinking in my mind they were going to take the deer and take it to a wildlife shelter, and here they come carrying the baby deer over their shoulder. She was in a body bag. I said, ‘Why did you do that?’ He said, ‘That’s our policy,’ and I said, ‘That’s one hell of a policy.’”
This is not the first time that Cathy Stepp has taken on Bambi. The first time had the same bloody and horrific results, but without the overkill in getting there:


  1. Giggles was just out getting skittles.

  2. The Republican Gestapo mentality seems to permeate every level in the Walker regime, whether it's throwing a handcuffed senior citizen down the steps at the Capitol or a SWAT raid on an animal shelter: the authoritarian sickness is metastasizing. Twinkie fascism is on the march.

  3. The DNR must've assumed Giggles was packing.

  4. Those condemning the execution of "Giggles" do not know the whole story.

    In the coming days, I hope that WDNR Secretary Cathy Stepp will hold a news conference detailing the true threat that "Giggles" posed to the safety and security of Wisconsin citizens.

  5. Cathy has to go. Who does she think she is...Obama!
