MI: Bow hunters charged after Warren cops say they illegally bagged deer within city

December 28, 2012

Two metro Detroit relatives are taking some heat from Warren police and Mayor Jim Fouts, accused of killing a deer in the city with a bow and arrow.
Fouts is so outraged that he released a statement today saying he wants the judge to “inflict the maximum fine, and when these predators are on trial, I will be sitting in the courtroom to be certain they pay for their crimes.”

He said probation is “not satisfactory.”
Myles Ehret, 19, of Royal Oak and William Francis, 27, of Riverview are charged with cruelty to animals, a four-year felony, and were given $10,000 cash surety bonds, according to information from Fouts’ office. Police are seeking a search warrant to gather more evidence of the slain deer.
“I consider deer in our city a domesticated animal because their tameness and the joy they bring to observers, especially children,” Fouts said in his release.
