Local Deerkeeper Reaches Deal With State

Dec 19, 2013

A Mount Vernon woman who has been fighting for months to keep some injured deer in her enclosed back yard says she has reached an agreement with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources.

The department wanted to euthanize the animals, citing a state law preventing people from keeping deer as pets. Carol Deyo talks about the agreement with Ohio Public Radio's Jo Ingles.

Deyo, a former veterinary technician, says she was nursing the deer back to health.
