MARSHFIELD, Wis. (AP) — The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says two groups of juveniles from Clark County are responsible for fatally shooting more than 40 deer and a horse which the agency calls “thrill kills.”

DNR law enforcement supervisor Lt. Robin Barnhardt says early in November people started reporting large numbers of deer being shot and left behind. The DNR and Clark County Sheriff’s Office determined two separate groups of juveniles were suspected in the killings.

Wardens are still working on determining if the two groups are connected in some way or if it was just coincidence that they both were doing the shootings at the same time.
