A judge has dismissed animal cruelty charges against two of the three accused men, after attorneys argued they were simply hunting the deer. Charges against the third defendant could also be dropped.
State Representative Dean Kaufert says it's a slap in the face to all legitimate hunters to equate running down deer with a snowmobile to legitimate hunting.
The Neenah Republican plans to introduce a bill that would allow animal cruelty charges if someone is not participating in legitimate and recognized methods of hunting.
Kaufert says he's pushing for the change after many constituents approached him following the dropped charges. He says people are upset and want to make sure it can't happen again.
Rory and Robbie Kuenzi, along with Nicholas Hermes, do face additional charges in the case.
