Staff members at August Schell Brewing Company in New Ulm found one of their whitetail bucks slain Friday inside its enclosure.
According to the brewery's Facebook page, an active investigation is underway to find the "cowardly, heartless bastard" responsible.
The whitetail deer is a staple of the Schell's brand. An image can be found on every beer bottle and various deer monuments are littered around brewery grounds. Schell's also brews a lager called "Deer Brand."
The deer park is located adjacent to the brewery.
