    An Indiana cop, and his missus, face two months jail, and, a $2k fine, for nursing an injured deer back to health. The Indiana Natural Resources Dept wanted the deer put down, but, by sheer coincidence the deer managed to escape the day before doomsday arrived. Can you see a US jury finding this couple guilty, and ruining the career of a cop? http://rt.com/usa/news/couple-jail-baby-deer-122/

    Commonsense would say that the case is dropped, however, commonsense would say that they were never charged in the first place.

    Ah.. it would appear to be a happy ending.

    “Look, we all admire compassion for an injured animal," the governor said. "Hoosiers cherish our animals, whether they’re our pets, our livestock or whether they’re wild animals."

    Although Pence said the state laws need to be "fairly and impartially enforced," by Friday, the state's natural resources department announced that Pence had asked them to reevaluate the case.

    After their examination, officials asked prosecutors to drop the charges.
