Deer shot and killed after breaking into downtown CD Source in Rockford
Online Staff Report
A deer that broke through a window at CD Source, 228 E. State St., downtown Rockford, at around 8 a.m., Friday, Oct. 28, was shot and killed.
Rockford police and Winnebago County Animal Services did not have a tranquilizer strong enough to subdue the buck, which had reportedly sustained an injury. As a result, officials decided to fatally shoot the deer twice with a rifle. No people were harmed.
The deer was reportedly in the store for about an hour. The deer’s body will be processed into meat and donated to a local food bank.
