Frisky deer lead police to marijuana farm
by UPI

TRENTO, Italy - Some "unusually frisky" deer led police in northern Italy to a mountaintop marijuana plantation.

A university student and a factory worker, both in their 20s, were arrested on charges of growing the marijuana, the news agency ANSA reported. Defense lawyers said the deer consumed most of the evidence, which could lead to the charges being dropped.

The deer first attracted the attention of forest rangers who wondered why deer, normally reclusive animals, were out on the mountains during the daytime. They also heard stories from local residents of the deer being "unusually frisky," making great leaps on the mountainside.

When the rangers visited the mountaintop, they found some plant pots and shredded marijuana.
