HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission officers need your help finding the person or people responsible for killing three white tail deer.
The deer were killed at Nature’s Classroom in Thonotosassa between October 2 and 3. The deer, affectionately named by staff as Buck, Rosie and Katy Perry, were beaten to death inside their fenced enclosure.
The animals were part of an outdoor classroom for children, to learn about nature. FWC officials say they don’t have any suspects and no motive for the brutal beatings.
