MADISON - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources' board is set to consider revisions to the agency's captive deer policies this week.
The DNR has proposed changing state law to let people keep wild deer in pens if they pay fines and have veterinarians check the animals out.
The agency also has proposed changing internal policies to allow DNR workers to return captive deer to the wild and specify they should euthanize captive deer only if the animals are sick or present a health risk to the public or other wildlife.
The Legislature would have to change state law to allow people to keep wild deer as pets.
The DNR's board can implement the other changes.
The board is scheduled to consider them at its meeting Wednesday in Pembine.
