GOLDEN GATE ESTATES, Florida (AP) - A Collier County main accused of shooting two doe deer says he needed to feed his family.
Jail records show 41-year-old Wilfredo Castillo was arrested Friday on charges of unlawful taking of doe deer, discharging a firearm from a public roadway and felony trespassing by projectile. His court date is June 11. It was not immediately known if he has an attorney.
The Naples Daily News reports Castillo told deputies he shot the deer because he was unemployed and needed food to feed his family. He said he was on his way home from hog hunting with his son when he spotted two deer running across the road. Castillo said he got out of his car and shot them.
Deputies stopped him as he went to recover the deer.
