Deer action shot down after passage

Niki Kelly, Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

INDIANAPOLIS - The new director of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources blocked an attempt Wednesday to remove the DNR's authority over captive deer, elk and other cervidae livestock operations. Some conservation groups fear such a move would hinder the DNR's ability to enforce hunting regulations on preserves that allow hunting of captive white-tailed deer behind a game-proof fence. The House Agriculture and Rural Development Committee first adopted an amendment moving all regulation of deer, elk, moose, reindeer and caribou farms to the Indiana State Board of Animal Health. The DNR would have had no authority under the amendment, which was offered by Howe Republican Rep. Marlin Stutzman.
