Deli Employees Poach Deer on College Campus
Apparently stealth wasn't a part of the game plan for two Big Belly Delly employees, of Rahway New Jersey, caught poaching deer on the Rutgers campus. Gerard Kirk and Peter Ward were apprehended in a van bearing the Big Belly Delly name. According to NJ.com, the pair had previously taken poached game back to the deli, but authorities are still trying to determine if any of the game was sold to customers.
Chicketano said the state began an investigation Jan. 25, after Rutgers police received reports of gunshots on the Livingston campus. Police received information the shots were coming from a white van. Police and state investigators arrested Kirk and Ward in a deli van on the campus. The driver was "driving slow, in a manner consistent with deer poaching," said Mark Chicketano, acting chief of enforcement for the state Division of Fish and Wildlife.
