A Sacramento County family's pet deer has been released into the wild, a day after being confiscated by state wildlife officers. Officials rebuffed claims that the doe was domesticated and unable to survive on her own. California Fish and Wildlife spokeswoman Janice Mackey tells the Sacramento Bee that the deer was evaluated and determined to be a good candidate for release. Earlier the agency said the chances were "very slim" that the animal would be let loose in the wild. The deer was a fawn when it was taken in by a Rio Linda family two years ago.
