Lost deer beaten to death with a board


SEBRING — A deer was beaten to death in daylight with a board after it wandered into the city.

“Things got out of control,” said Jamey Graham, a wildlife communications specialist for the Ohio Department of Natural Resources based in Akron.

The killing occurred shortly before noon Dec. 2 in the 100 block of West Ohio Avenue.

The deer had gone into a three-sided box created by a building and two extending walls.

Left alone, the deer probably would have ventured off, Graham said.

But instead of leaving the deer be, an undetermined number of people began to gather.
