Re "Pet deer is quickly released into wild" (Page A1, March 28): Releasing this young pet doe into the wild is downright criminal. I'm more than outraged at The Fish and Wildlife officials' incompetence. Those who perpetrated this heinous act should be prosecuted for cruelty or at the very least fired.
This pet didn't have a mom to teach it survival skills. It doesn't know hunters, traffic, bears or most of the other hazards in the wild. It also doesn't have foraging skills. I hope the Rio Linda family knows how many Sacramentans are outraged at this wrong.
