Update! ‘Lilly’ The Deer vs. DNR The Saga Continues [VIDEO]

The saga of ‘Lilly’ the deer vs. the DNR appears to be heating up.The latest twist to the story that we posted yesterday is that the Michigan Department of Natural Resources isn’t backing down from its threat to remove Lilly the deer from her family. The DNR says it’s illegal to keep the deer in their home, even though she’s been a family pet for the past five years.

Now the DNR says Lily must be put back into the wild or be put down. “Deer are wild animals,” said Brent Rudolph, with the DNR’s Deer and Elk program. “Even when they’re accustomed to being around people, they can still be very unpredictable.” So the DNR is saying that Lilly could be a threat to humans.

Lilly was born in the front yard of a Genesee County home five years ago after her mother was hit by a car. As the mother deer lay dying she gave birth to two fawns, one died, the other was in rough shape. The DNR says deer might look cute and cuddly, but in a blink of an eye, they can be deadly. The DNR says even though you may feel like you are doing the right thing, it is best for the animals that we leave them alone. There is a petition to save’s the link.
