Earlier this week, West Virginia Natural Resources Police learned of an unusual complaint: someone reported someone had live deer inside their home.

NRP officers Addesa and Nicely were on their way to work on boat patrol when they went to investigate the complaint of deer inside a home in Cabell County.

Once there, officers found two bucks inside the residence. During their investigation NRP Officers learned that the deer had been living inside the home for at least a year.

A man was charged and prosecution is pending. The deer were set free. According to the West Virginia Natural Resources Police Facebook page:

It is illegal to confine wildlife or secure them in an area where they are not able to roam free or come and go as they please.
