CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (AP) - A hunter in southeast Missouri who killed a rare white deer says he's received online threats but that he doesn't regret his actions.
Jerry Kinnaman shot a 10-point white buck with a bow and arrow on a friend's property in Cape Girardeau County on Tuesday morning. Photos of Kinnaman's kill have spread widely online, prompting what he calls a flood of angry messages.
Kinnaman says he hasn't reported any of the notes to authorities.
He and other hunters had declined to show the animal previously. The property owner on whose land the deer was shot was among those in opposition. But Kinnaman said his friend changed his mind after a steady stream of curiosity seekers came to take pictures of the animal.
