MEDIA ALERT: CONCRETE DEER NOTICE A HOAX

September 29, 2015

An official looking memo from DNR is making the rounds on social media asking citizens to remove concrete deer from their property so they won't be accidentally counted in an upcoming statewide deer count. This is a hoax. This did not come from DNR.

One way to spot this hoax is in the signature on the fake memo. The name used is misspelled and even if spelled correctly, that person is not the DNR Secretary as suggested.
