VIRGINIA, MN (Northland's NewsCenter)---Two men and one woman are facing charges for the illegal hunting of deer.

The three individuals face fines totaling nearly $2,800.

Pending charges include illegal party hunting, lending and borrowing deer licenses and failure to register big game animals according to The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The three registered one deer at a Virginia convenience store on Oct. 12.

"The caller became suspicious because they thought the three people were inebriated and when they looked inside the back of the vehicle at the deer, they saw a large amount of blood," Matt Frericks a DNR Conservation Officer said. "They didn't think that this one deer could possibly produce that much blood."

If anyone notices suspicious hunting activity, they are asked to call their local DNR conservation officer.
