MILWAUKEE (AP) - A Brookfield man accused of killing a popular deer in a Milwaukee County park will lose his hunting and fishing privileges for a year.

Twenty-nine-year-old Jason Elliott was facing three citations for killing the deer called “Bow Tie” because of its white throat patch.

Elliott pleaded no contest Tuesday to failing to validate or attach a deer tag, hunting with an improper license and hunting without proper colored clothing. The court then found him guilty.

WITI-TV (https://bit.ly/1Opxqih ) reports Elliott was ordered to pay a total of $1,540 in fines by March 14.

Authorities say Elliott used a crossbow to kill the 12-point buck in Menomonee River Parkway in Wauwatosa on Dec. 13. Hunting is banned in the park.



The court also ordered all evidence in the case to be confiscated.
