IN: Indiana hunter accused of illegally shooting rare albino deer

November 27, 2012

From TheStarPress.com

Department of Natural Resources conservation officers credit a group of neighbors with helping them nab a suspected deer poacher accused of illegally shooting a rare albino deer in southwestern Indiana.
Conservation officer Mike Kellner said that just after dark on Nov. 17, neighbors on Eble and Pigeon Valley roads in southeast Warrick County saw a man shoot an albino deer with a shotgun after the deer had been illuminated by his pickup's headlights.
The witnesses immediately reported the shooting, and conservation officers headed out to the area. But by the time officers arrived, the suspect was gone. They searched but they couldn't find the dead deer or the suspect, later identified as Donald Kenny II, 28, of Newburgh.
Conservation officers have requested the Warrick County prosecutor's office charge Kenny with Class B and C misdemeanors for shooting from a public roadway, shooting after legal deer-hunting hours, using an artificial light to kill a deer, illegal taking of deer and not having the required license to shoot an antlerless deer.
