(WZZM) -- Did a Michigan State Police Trooper act appropriately by shooting a deer that was blocking his way?

YouTube video posted this week shows a scene some may find disturbing. A stunned deer appears frozen in the headlights of the trooper's squad car.

After several minutes and attempts to nudge the deer with the vehicle and scare it off with the siren, a trooper pulls out his gun and shoots the deer in the head.

Voices on the recording say the animal was hurt during a previous car accident. Michigan State Police responded to the video, telling WXYZ the trooper followed protocol and the case is not under investigation.
