WHAT’S HAPPENING AROUND TOWN

Neighborhood Deer Safely Taken to Rehabilitator

The McLean Police Dept. is happy to report that with the assistance of the USDA (United States Dept. of Agriculture) Wildlife Division and the IDNR (Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources) Conservation Police Division, yesterday our neighborhood deer was humanely sedated and transported to a wildlife rehabilitator without incident or injury. Thank you to all who helped us keep eyes on the deer to let us know were she has been seen until we could get this set up with the other agencies. It was a great coordinated effort by all with a great outcome. Thank you, and if you come across another similar situation, remember please DO NOT FEED the deer. The best advice is to just leave the animal alone and to let it go on its way. Thank you again for your attention to this matter.
