Picture: N.J. hunts for deer with arrow in head

Susan Darrah deer

Updated: The young deer returned to Darrah’s backyard on Wednesday.*

When a deer with an arrow piercing its jaw wandered into the Rockaway Township backyard of Susan Darrah on Friday, she was so appalled she posted a picture on Facebook and called the authorities.

“Tried to capture him to no avail… he can eat, run and there’s no blood, less chance of infection,” Darrah writes. “I just feel so bad for him.”

N.J. wildlife officials haven’t been able to find the deer, reports nj.com, which notes that the state is in the middle of bow hunt season.

*Updated Thursday 11.07.13: Darrah has been putting out corn and pears in her backyard for the deer, as instructed by the state’s Division of Fish and Wildlife. On  Wednesday afternoon she saw the wounded deer show up with seven friends, The Star-Ledger reports. The animals chomped on the food for about 20 minutes and then retreated into the woods as it grew dark. Darrah again contacted authorities; Fish and Wildlife crews continue to search for the wounded animal.

    This is why bow & arrow should be outlawed. I would like to put an arrow in the face of the hunter.

    When you see a deer laying along the roadside dead do you want to run over the driver with a car.

    That comment makes you sound worse than the hunter who may have had a arrow deflect from a small branch. Archery hunting should not be outlawed.
