Deer living in B.C. home has to go, officials demand - British Columbia - CBC News

Deer living in B.C. home has to go, officials demand - British Columbia - CBC News:

January 16, 2013 - "The B.C. owner of a domesticated deer that likes to eat cookies, watch TV and dance to rock and roll says provincial officials are once again demanding she turn the animal loose.

"The black-tailed deer has been living inside Janet Schwartz's home in the Vancouver Island town of Ucluelet since it was a fawn, and Schwartz is refusing to force the 10-year-old animal out.

"In 2009, officials with the B.C. Ministry of Environment ordered Schwartz to set the deer free or take it to a rehabilitation centre, saying wild animals should not be kept as pets.

"Schwartz said she and the deer, which she’s named Bimbo, have been living happily since provincial officials backed off when the story first hit the media."
