Subject: Fw: Five years ago, a female deer was hit outside of a Michigan couple's home.
The deer suddenly went into labor and gave birth to twins. One of the twins died, but the other survived. Not knowing what to do with the near-dead baby, the couple asked the responding police officer if they could try and nurse it back to health. He told them to go for it. They named her Lilly, and she became just another member of the family. She sleeps on a futon, watches animal planet, likes to sleep in and nap with the cats, while also enjoying a game of Frisbee in the back yard. But after receiving a complaint, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources is threatening to take Lilly away from the only family she's ever known. If Lilly fails to rehabilitate, they will put her down. Do you think the family should be able to keep Lily?


  1. Oh my goodness!!! Of course they should be able to keep her! If she is being fed the correct diet, given exercise and loved, why would anyone have anything negative to say about this??!!! I hope Lily gets to live a long and happy life with her family!

  2. They saved her life and they don't torture her or treat her inhumanely in any way. They should keep her especially because I doubt she would ever make it in the wild! They would be killing her, period.
