Florida wildlife officials said charges of possessing illegally taken wildlife stemmed from photos of a deer carcass posted to Facebook.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said Citrus County residents William Buchanan, 21, and Tara Anne Carver, 28, were charged with second-degree misdemeanor counts of possession of illegally taken wildlife after photos appeared on Facebook of them skinning the animal, the Ocala (Fla.) Star-Banner reported Wednesday.
Lt. Steve Farmer, investigations supervisor for the commission, said investigators determined the deer was killed in May, outside of deer season. He said Carver told investigators Buchanan killed the deer, but he admitted only to helping to move and skin the animal.
Farmer said a third suspect in the case was not charged due to his involvement in a separate case.
