Only Santa Claus should be having any type of deer living in his home.

Having a small wild animal live in your home does not sound like the beat i-deer. But, that is just what a Greene County man was doing. According to a New York Upstate story, the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently got a complaint about a man "possessing" a white-tail fawn. And by possessing, it seems the deer was basically living in the man's house. When the DEC went to the man's house to address the complaint, he had the fawn in his house! According to the NYUP story, it is illegal to possess a fawn, and it had been staying at the house for 4 days. The animal was deemed malnourished and was admitted to a Greene Country rehab center, and the man who had the animal got a ticket!

First, bringing any wild animal into your house seems like an absolutely terrible idea. Trying to adopt a young wild deer that needs special care seems even more foolish. I bet even a fawn could do some serious damage inside a house, plus the animal probably was all out of sorts being out of its natural habitat. Not to mention the ticks and other not-so-fun things a wild animal could bring into the home

So as we celebrate 6 months until Christmas today, June 25th, let's leave adopting deer to the only person on the planet who is qualified to do so: The jolly old man himself, Santa Claus!
