Man Facing Fines For Saving Deer

A Pennsylvania man attempting to save a deer from frigid weather and chilly water is potentially facing up to $800 in fines after taking the deer back to his garage to warm it up.

The young buck had fallen through a frozen lake near Gifford Pinchot State Park in York County last weekend and emergency responders had pulled it out of the water when John Stoll Jr. arrived, according to the York Daily Record. 

Nobody told the man he couldn't take the deer, nor help it. He plans to fight the fines in court. 

Moral of the story: Don't touch wildlife.
