David Charrier of Detroit served jail term for animal cruelty.
Somerset County District Attorney Evert Fowle says Charrier took the deer and kept it for several hours before taking it to a butcher shop.
Charrier pleaded guilty last month to cruelty to animals and other charges and was sentenced to a 10-day jail term for putting an injured deer in the trunk of his car and keeping it there for more than eight hours before taking it to a butcher shop when it was still alive.
The butcher called police, who told him to euthanize the animal. The butcher then called the Maine Warden Service.
