Man Faces Charges for Shooting Deer in PA Walmart Parking Lot
By Chad Love
You can find literally everything you need to hunt deer at Walmart, including, apparently, the deer...
From this story on cbslocal.com:
An Indiana County man is facing several charges, after wildlife officials say he went deer hunting in a Walmart parking lot. The Indiana Gazette reports 40-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr., fired several rounds from a handgun at a 10-point white-tailed deer from within the Burrell Township store’s parking lot, and then bagged the animal near Old William Penn Highway.
According to the story, the unconventional deer hunt occurred last November while Bianco was shopping and saw the buck in the parking lot. "Natty Bumppo" Bianco then allegedly hopped out of the truck, gun in hand and bullets started flying. He bagged the deer, then the Pennsylvania Game Commission bagged him. Bianco faces a misdemeanor count of reckless endangerment and a host of hunting violations, including (but not limited to) hunting without a license, shooting on or across highways and unlawful killing or taking of big game. A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for May 1.
