Family Fighting To Keep Their Pet Deer

| Filed under: Legal MattersSad SadPetsDeer

To most people, pets become a part of their family as much as a human member.

So when the government tries to rip away a member of your family, you fight!

That's exactly what a family is doing because the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is trying to take away their pet deer, Lilly.

Five years ago, a pregnant deer was hit by a car outside of the family's home.

That deer gave birth to Lilly before dying.

Her owner said:

"[Lilly was in] rough shape, but she was alive. I asked the officer if he had any problem if we could try to save her and he said, 'Go ahead, she won’t last 15 minutes, but give it a try.' Five years later, she’s a member of our family and we love her to pieces."

Now, the government is trying to tell them they can't have Lilly because she's a wild animal and is dangerous to have at home.

The family fears Lilly will be euthanized because she's not accustomed to living in the wild.
