Wisconsin Roadkill Custody Battle

_John J. Longo ate the deer he took from the side of the road in February 2008.

He asked a friend -- a Caledonia police officer and taxidermist -- to mount its head.
_Now, the Court of Appeals has ordered him to surrender the trophy to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, because he never got a permit.

_Longo's friend told him he needed to get a permit for the deer; Longo didn't. . . .

[Now] Judge Allan "Pat" Torhorst . . . [has] found him guilty, fined him $1 and ordered him to surrender the deer head to the DNR "upon request."
