Fate Of Domesticated ‘Lilly The Deer’ Discussed In News Conference Today [VIDEO]
The fate of Lilly the domesticated deer will be the topic of a press conference. An attorney representing Lilly's family will make an announcement on Monday. Attorney Valdemar Washington will speak Monday at 1 p.m. in downtown Flint. The deer is being raised by a Mid-Michigan family, but state officials call her a wild animal, not a pet.
We thought this situation was resolved..but guess not. It was reported that 'Lilly' was going to go to live at the Detroit zoo.
The Department of Natural Resources said it's illegal to keep the deer in their home, even though she's been a family pet for the past five years.
DNR officials have said Lilly must be put back into the wild or be put down. I will keep you informed as to what happens at the press conference today.
