BLAIRSVILLE, Pa. – They say you can get almost anything at Wal-Mart. But the Pennsylvania Game Commission says one deer hunter took it too far.
Forty-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr. is charged with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations, accused of shooting across a highway to kill a 10-point buck he spotted in a Wal-Mart parking lot in November.
Defense attorney Jason Huska declined to comment Wednesday on the specific allegations but said his client denies wrongdoing. Bianco faces a preliminary hearing May 1 on charges reported by the Indiana Gazette (http://bit.ly/YEmOVY).
Wildlife Conservation Officer Jack Lucas said Bianco fired several shots in the parking lot, then retrieved the deer from the side of the highway opposite the store, about 30 miles east of Pittsburgh.
Lucas said the buck is one of the nicest taken in Indiana County in recent years.
