Police reported that they found more than a dozen dead deer at Santa’s Land in southern Vermont, and the park’s owner and a caretaker have been accused of animal cruelty. Officers with the Windham County Sheriff’s Department said Monday that 24-year-old caretaker Brian Deistler and 55-year-old owner Lillian Billewicz have been cited to appear in court. Sheriff Keith Clark said 16 deer carcasses, as well as a dead pot-bellied pig and a pheasant, were found at the park over the weekend. He said the office of the state’s attorney will decide whether to file charges.
