A hunter shoots a deer at Wal-Mart in Pennsylvania, leading authorities to charge the man with reckless endangerment and hunting law violations. The incident took place last November when 40-year-old Arcangelo Bianco Jr. spotted a deer in the parking lot of Wal-Mart, chased it through the lot and across a highway while firing off rounds from his handgun.

The Pennsylvania game Commission said Bianco fired several rounds of his handgun at a white-tailed deer from the parking lot of Wal-Mart in Burrell Township, about 45 miles outside of Pittsburgh. Bianco was caught on security cameras chasing the deer through the parking lot. The deer was a 10-point buck.

"Obviously, we can't have someone running through a Wal-Mart parking lot shooting at a deer," Jack Lucas, the wildlife conservation officers who investigated the incident, told the Indiana Gazette. In addition to the reckless endangerment charge, Bianco is being charged with hunting without a license, shooting across a highway and unlawful killing or taking of big game, the Examiner reports.

According to Fox News, Bianco, after killing the deer, loaded it into his truck and took it to a meat processor for butchering.

Bianco's preliminary hearing is on May 1.
