INVERNESS, Fla. (AP) - Florida wildlife officials have cited twocentral Florida residents after uncovering photos on Facebook of an illegal deer skinning.

Twenty-one-year-old William Andrew Buchanan and 27-year-old Tara Anne Carver have both been cited with possession of wildlife taken illegally, a second-degree misdemeanor.

Investigators say they found photos of the skinning picturing both suspects on Facebook.

According to authorities, Buchanan confirmed he had helped skin the deer, but wouldn't admit to shooting or being present when it was killed. Investigators say Carver also admitted to skinning the animal.

The deer was reportedly killed in May, outside of the permitted hunting season.

The suspects could be fined up to $500 and face up to 60 days in jail.
