Two men who allegedly killed a deer in the city of Warren, Mich., with a bow and arrow are coming under fire from the mayor who hopes to see them put behind bars.

The Detroit Free Press reported Myles Ehret, 19, and William Francis, 27, have been charged with animal cruelty, a felony with a maximum sentence of four years in prison. In Warren hunting is illegal.

Mayor Jim Fouts said in a statement obtained by the Free Press he hopes authorities “inflict the maximum fine, and when these predators are on trial, I will be sitting in the courtroom to be certain they pay for their crimes” and he noted probation was “not [a] satisfactory” option.

Don't they call that poaching? Wouldn't Game Commission rules apply to this?
I don't suffer from insanity.
I enjoy every minute of it.

But let's release animals like the fire ambush shooter. Cause that's "humane"
Just more hypocrisy.

I think the mayor is just posturing, and I don't think they can be charged in the way he wants. I'm not familiar with the hunting laws, but I do believe that they could only be charged with violations related to hunting and possibly trespassing.

I agree with you, but they should only be prosecuted under the applicable laws, which I believe are hunting laws, not animal cruelty. If this is allowed to through for a prosecution for animal cruelty, every hunter could potentially be charged whether they're legally hunting or not.

Mayors don't have to sit in front of a judge and present a criminal prosecution. That's why most everywhere, District Attorneys are politically-independent positions from the chief executive, most of the time by direct election.

The mayor can blab all the shit he wants. It will just make a defense attorney very happy 18+ months from now when the prosecution fails and they can make the mayor look like an ass in the press.

The mayor's right, humans are predators.

If they were poaching illegally, then try them and if found guilty, sentence appropriately.

But stop the childish theatrics on the word predator, it makes the user sound like a pansy.
