Keeping a deer as a pet illegal in Florida

In the past year in Northwest Florida, wildlife authorities have found five people keeping deer as pets, according to an article Northwest Florida Daily News. Keeping a deer as a pet is illegal and is punishable by a fine of up to $500 and up to six months in jail. Like any wild animal, the article stresses that deer are unpredictable and do not make good pets. The article describes a deer that was found wearing a collar that attacked a four-year girl and a man who received a number of puncture wounds on his chest from a deer that was being kept as pet.

This world has gone freakin control freak.... The Lord created animals for man to take care of.... Those who abuse them in can understand punishment but for those who nuture protect and raise as the Lord intended they come under NO punishment. If can't wait for JESUS to return. . All you who think you have control have NOTHING.
