The Wisconsin DNR is really looking bad here. I never heard of anything like this happening before.
Deer are very common animals in this state. We have our deer hunting season in the fall. If you hit a deer, with your car, it's yours.
I don't know what their problem is. I'm not happy with my state's government as it is. I didn't vote for them, but it still pisses me off.

I bet one million dollars that Giggles wasn't abandoned at all. White-tailed deer will leave their young fawns alone as a matter of routine. When they are young like that, they barely have any scent and can lie hidden in the grass and brush from predators while their mothers eat. They only return to feed the fawn. This prevents their own scent from hanging around the fawn.
Most people aren't aware this is how deer raise offspring, so when they stumble upon a fawn sitting all alone like this with no adult in sight, they assume its been abandoned or the doe is dead because what mother would just leave her baby sitting there in a field? Out of the best of intentions, people unknowingly take the fawns in to shelters or their own care and away from their mothers.
Unless one knows for sure that the doe has died or the fawn is emaciated or obviously sick or injured, it is always best to leave them alone. Deer are wild animals and have developed their rearing techniques over countless millenia. So poor little Giggles shouldn't have even been in this position. The state may have given the injection, but 'twas ignorance that killed Giggles.
One more word about Wisconsin and deer. State law forbids the rehabilitation of white-tailed deer due to the presence of something called "Chronic Wasting Disease" that is present in the population. It's basically "Mad Cow Disease" for deer. It's spread between individuals where populations are very high. Deer held in captivity are particularly vulnerable. So the law is in place to slow the spread of CWD in the wild.
