Local man kills Sika deer in his yard

2012 - Dustin Hardbarger of Brohard-Leading Creek shot and killed a male Sika deer in his yard, but not before consulting with game officials.

WV-DNR came out to confirm that it was in fact a Sika, "The officer said that the animals had escaped from a pen in Ohio and there is an open season on them to eradicate the deer before they get established."

The Sika have been sighted in Wood, Ritchie, and now Calhoun Counties.
