A man kills doe and shoots at officers
An Alachua County man is behind bars tonight charged with killing three female deer out of season and dumping their carcasses in a pond. When officers approached the man, they say he fired a shot at them.
Even though hunting season is open, Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission say that all game is not fair game right now and the doe is off limits. Some people are not playing by the rules and taking game from private property. Three doe are dead at the hands of an unmerciful person. FWC officers arrested Christopher Henry Rose late last night at his home after a witness saw him cleaning out the carcasses of two doe. When officials approached his house, they say Mr. Rose came out of the front door and fired a shotgun in the air. The officers took cover and called for back up. Mr. Rose was taken into custody.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission Officer, Brad Stanley says," It's breeding season, so your not allowed to kill the doe. We need to make sure that they are impregnated and to have more young to keep the population where it is".
Christopher Rose is charged with aggravated assault on an officer, hunting out of season and resisting arrest. His bond is set at thirty thousand dollars.
