Deputies Stunned to Find Endangered Deer in Car
March 11, 2023
For the first time, the public is getting a look inside the traffic stop where cops say they discovered a deer inside the car. The police body camera footage came to light thanks to WPLG-TV, who was the first news outlet to share it. In July 2022, deputies in Monroe County, Florida, spotted a Key deer in the backseat. Key deer are endangered and unique to only the lower Florida Keys. Two men in the car were arrested and charged with cruelty to animals and taking, possessing or selling a federally designated endangered or threatened species.
