On Friday, October 28, 2011 officers from the Kennesaw Police Department responded to a residence on Cranbrook Walk in Legacy Park, in reference to possible animal entrails found in the back yard. When the officers arrived they found what appeared to be hair and entrails belonging to a deer.
After further investigation the officers located two deer stands in the nearby tree line along with evidence of something being dragged through the woods and an arrow. The drag marks ended at a house on Forest Grove Pass in the New McEver Woods subdivision. The officers made contact with a female at the residence and she stated that her brother, 29-year-old Alton Cain, had taken a deer to a local taxidermist.
A game warden with Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GDNR) was dispatched to the area and made contact with Mr. Cain. Mr. Cain advised that he had been hunting from one of the deer stands located on private property belonging to Legacy Park. The game warden charged Mr. Cain with Hunting on Private Property without Permission, Possession of Illegally Take Wildlife and a warning for Hunting without a License; apparently Mr. Cain obtained his license after the incident. GDNR took possession of the deer.
