Officer: Pennsylvania Men Killed Deer for Super Bowl Fest
UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) Two western Pennsylvania men are in trouble for allegedly serving poached food at their Super Bowl party and that doesn't mean eggs or salmon.
Instead, a state wildlife conservation officer has charged 21-year-old Christopher Layman, of Uniontown, and 35-year-old James Donaldson, of Lemont Furnace, with killing two deer out of season on Feb. 5 so they could serve fresh venison at their Super Bowl party the next day.
Online court records don't list attorneys for either man and The Associated Press could not locate a home telephone number for Donaldson. Layman didn't immediately return a message seeking comment Friday.
The game officer says a third person with the men told him what happened. That man is not charged. The officer says both men then confessed to killing the deer and butchering them in a garage.
