Man cited, accused of killing deer in Milwaukee County park

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - A 29-year-old Milwaukee man has received three citations after allegedly killing a white-tailed deer in a Milwaukee County park, where hunting is banned.

Authorities say Jason Elliott used a crossbow to kill a 12-point buck in Menomonee River Parkway in Wauwatosa on Dec. 13. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports (http://bit.ly/1Onl2EG ) many called the deer "Bow Tie" because of its white throat patch.

The Department of Natural Resources cited Elliott for failing to validate or attach a deer tag, hunting with an improper license and hunting without proper colored clothing. The DNR says it will seek to revoke Elliott's hunting privileges for a year and confiscate his crossbow.

A listed phone number for Elliott wasn't immediately available and it's unknown if he has an attorney. He has a January court date.
