Apparently it was a regular pencil, with paper wrapped around it to make a more effective dart.

People who are cruel to animals soon move on to humans. They lack any kind of empathy.

Hoping that this was not an experiment to do just what you suggest, Luddite. Not simply bored amusement with collateral animal cruelty, but something darker and more devious?

Take fingerprints from the dart; Penalize the idiot (for want of stronger language).

The city is home to around 1,500 deer, which roam freely in and around the park and are a major tourist draw.

Edit: The city is home to around 1,500 deer which roam freely around the town and are a major traffic hazard. They also have attacked children and cause severe injuries.

I wonder what message from the Gods they are trying to convey.

We have thought about visiting Nara several times but decide against it because of the deers.

They won't eat you. Do the hustle is being a bit of a drama queen about the deer TBH. I've been to Nara many times, the last time a few weeks back. Most of the deer are in the park, they mostly stay in the tourist areas where they know they'll be fed. They are rather sweet and tame.

The deer are the main reason to visit Nara.

(Deer is the plural of deer, btw. )

Animal cruelty is pretty dark and devious by itself, and should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
