Conservative celebrity and hunting enthusiast Ted Nugent had himself filmed shooting a fawn that had been lured to with bait…
California Department of Fish and Game spokesman Patrick Foy says game wardens saw Nugent kill an immature buck on a February episode of his Outdoor Channel TV show “Spirit of the Wild.”
Investigators found that the deer had been eating bait called “C’mere Deer.” Baiting wildlife is illegal in California.
Nugent originally faced 11 charges, including killing a deer too young to be hunted.
It’s a manly thing to shoot critters in the woods, but the stalking part involves a lot of walking, which is tough on the knees as we all get older. Better to open up a lawn chair and let the deer come to you.
I seem to recall allegations that Dick (Richard) Cheney was strolling in a manicured park with attendents shooing birds toward him when he went on his infamous
lobbyist quail shooting excursion.
But you can’t expect important men to sweat like some redneck hunting dinner.
Seriously, I heard that feral pigs are a real nuisance in some places, (in America, I’m not talking about the radioactive kind). Why doesn’t Nugent face off against an aggressive, non-cute, invasive animal instead of a harmless little fawn that thought it found the deer candy store?
UPDATE: Sources have informed me that Nugent did not shoot a cute fawn, but a juvenile buck. This particular juvenile buck was making bad choices and was a known juvenile delinquent. It was a threat to America, and the Constitution and all that we hold dear. Bad deer. Thank you for keeping us safe, Ted Nugent.
