A Wisconsin man has been ordered to return the roadkill deer head he mounted after eating the animal’s remains.
Seriously? Let’s start counting the problems here: Man eats another person’s roadkill deer, mounts it like he hunted it, and now the state wants the head back because it belongs to them?
Keep it weird, Wisconsin.
The 2nd District Court of Appeals says John Longo, 69, found a dead deer on the road near his home in February 2008. He put the carcass in his truck and ate it at home. He proceeded to mount the deer’s head for his home like it was some kind of trophy.
Wisconsin’s Department of Natural Resources is pissed. They gave him a $208 ticket later that year because it’s illegal to remove a deer carcass from the road unless you have a permit.
Then the story got dramatic. Wisconsin officials were fighting to get the deer head back. It’s their property, apparently.
