A buck named Bow Tie was shot and killed Sunday – in the Milwaukee County park system, where it's illegal to hunt deer, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Bow Tie (as you may have guessed by the fact that he has a name) was a well-known animal, with a patch of white fur on his neck.
The Journal Sentinel spoke with a photographer who'd seen Bow Tie around for the past eight years.
The buck though was killed in the Wauwatosa area by a hunter with a crossbow, who was later turned in by another man in the park at the time. FOX 6 reports the hunter has since been fined and is losing his license for a year.
Milwaukee County municipal code says no person "shall carry, fire or discharge any gun, pistol or firearm ... within any park or parkway without a written permit" from parks officials.
