DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (AP) -- Two pet deer allowed to roam free in a Dauphin Island neighborhood have been relocated by Alabama wildlife officials.

Reports say that deer are wild animals and can hurt people with their antlers and hoofs.

The woman who adopted them as pets after their mothers were run over by cars disagrees. She wants to know where the deer she has named Daisy and Darby were taken and how they were treated by wildlife officers.

The woman could face charges for transporting and keeping the animals illegally. Daisy and Darby were allowed to roam freely in the neighborhood and even welcome in some residents homes where they were fed and sometimes petted.
