Charges Dropped Against Randolph Co. Man for Holding Deer in Captivity

District attorney has dismissed charges against Kindley, case now "effectively moot"

The state announced Thursday District Attorney Garland Yates has dismissed the misdemeanor charge against Clifton Wayne Kindley for holding deer in captivity without a permit.

Nine deer shot were shot and killed at Wayne Kindley's rehabilitation farm in Asheboro last month. Officers said the deer were killed to be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease. The disease, essentially mad cow disease for deer, is highly contagious and has been devastating to deer populations in the northern Rockies.

Kindley was charged with holding deer in captivity without a permit. However, those charges were dismissed by the District Attorney's Office on Wednesday.
