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.
"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.
