Indiana Couple Save Deer Now Face Jail Time


Recommended Posts


Jeff and Jennifer Counceller thought were doing the right thing when they saved the life of an injured baby deer they found near their home in Indiana. But because they didn't have a permit, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is prosecuting them and they could face up to 60 days in prison.

After more than 150,000 people signed John Waudby's petition, criminal charges against Jeff and Jennifer Councellor have been dropped!

The county prosecutor had filedcharges against the couple for not having a permit to keep a deer they had rescued with serious injuries -- even though the Councellors had tried several times to find a home for it and obtain a permit for it from the Department of Natural Resources.

When John heard about the Councellors in the news, he started a petition on Change.org calling on the prosecutor to drop criminal charges against the Councellors. Within just a few days, an overwhelming number of people had signed it, contributing to the charges being completely lifted this week.
