CONNERSVILLE, Ind. (WISH) - Governor Pence is reviewing charges filed against a Connersville couple that rescued a dying fawn.
Connersville Officer Jeff Counceller and his wife nursed the animal, named "Dani," back to health, but now face charges for the illegal possession of a deer.
Their plight has sparked outrage inside and out of the Statehouse.
Wednesday, the governor responded to questions from reporters about the deer.
"We all admire compassion for an injured animal," Pence said. "But this is a state of laws. And, as governor of Indiana, my focus is going to be to ensure that our laws are fairly and impartially enforced."
Pence says he believes conservation officers properly followed state law.
But, he's requested a full briefing from the Department of Natural Resources.
