An investigation into a report of a young deer being kept illegally also led to the discovery of some marijuana plants at a residence in Marion County. According to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife, department officers went to a residence on McElroy Pike in Marion County on Monday, June 11th, after receiving a report of a young deer being illegally held captive. A search of the property revealed a young deer locked in a large dog cage outside the house, marijuana plants outside the house and marijuana plants growing inside a garage. Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife officers charged 26 year old Matt White of Lebanon with holding protected wildlife and cultivating five or more marijuana plants. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife goes on to say that more charges may be forthcoming based on other evidence found inside the house. White was lodged in the Marion County Jail. The deer seized in this case was turned over to a licensed wildlife rehabilitation specialist. The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife urges everyone to report suspicious or illegal activity involving wildlife by phoning 1-800-252-5378.
