Arkansas, Georgia wildlife officials investigating deer textbook beating

Posted By on Sat, Jan 30, 2016 at 7:04 AM

The Arkansas Game and Fish Commission is looking into a video that's surfaced recently of a man using a heavy accounting textbook to savagely beat a deer wedged into the backseat of his car.

Yeah, it's sort of hard to explain. The video was evidently made in Arkansas County, but the man  is a resident of Villa Rica, Georgia who was deer hunting in Arkansas; the Georgia Department of Natural Resources is joining the animal cruelty investigation. 

KATV contacted the police chief in Villa Rica to get details:

Police Chief Michael Mansour said the video was filmed in Arkansas. In a phone interview, he explained the Department of Natural Resources in Georgia told him the deer was hit by a car, the men then put the deer in the backseat, the deer then regained consciousness, and was beaten with the textbook. 
...
Keith Stephens, with Arkansas Game and Fish, said the man in the video will be interviewed by wildlife officers on Friday about the video.
...
"It was disgusting. That's not reflective of Arkansas values, especially outdoorsmen and hunters. It was hard to watch," said Stephens.

The Game and Fish Commission said the man could be fined up to $1,000 for an animal cruelty misdemeanor, along with the possibility of jail time, and that three other individuals in the car at the time could be charged with aiding and abetting.

The video isn't hard to find, if you really want to see a man beating an injured deer in the head.
