Default Mercy Killing

What would be the appropriate thing to do if you were in your stand and saw a wounded yearling doe pass, would you mercy kill it? If you knew the hunter that had shot it and could not find it, and also know that it had happend 8 days earlier, If you shot it for mercy, would it be edible??? Could it be dangerous to eat is my question? And would it be wrong to leave it in the field after mercy killing the wounded deer?
