Governments' Lighter Side

Apparently you can bag everything at Wal-Mart

BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. — They say you can get almost anything at Wal-Mart, but when’s the last time you bagged a buck in isle 6?

According to a report in the Indiana Gazette, 40-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr. has been charged with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations. His crime? Allegedly shooting across a highway to kill a 10-point buck he spotted from a Wal-Mart parking lot in November.

Wildlife Conservation Officer Jack Lucas says Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot  before retrieving the deer from the side of the highway opposite the store.

No one was injured in the shooting (though the deer might argue to the contrary).

Bianco faces a preliminary hearing May 1.
