Three teens face charges after allegedly skinning a pregnant deer and dumping it in a Franklin country club pool.
According to a Fox 17 report, Samuel Perry Bland, 18, and Stephen Ross, 19, and an unidentified minor were responsible for the carcass that was found at the Temple Hills Country Club in May.
Arrest warrants for Bland and Ross say they were traveling in a vehicle along Egypt Hollow Road when they spotted a white-tailed doe just off the road. Bland allegedly steered to keep the deer in their headlights while the other two shot at it from the vehicle.
Warrants then say the three suspects brought the dead doe to the Temple Hills Country Club where they climbed over a fence and dumped it in the pool. Damage to the country club is estimated at nearly $7,500.
Bland, Ross and the juvenile are charged with hunting from a motor vehicle, shooting from/across public road, hunting big game in closed season, illegal possession/taking, spotlighting deer, aggravated criminal littering, criminal trespass and vandalism greater than $2,500.
