Conservation Officers with the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources are seeking information from the public on two wasted buck deer in Carbon county.

On October 22 a hunter in the Gordon Creek Wildlife Management Area west of Price, found a 2 x 2 buck deer that had been left to waste.

The buck had the hide with the head attached removed from the carcass. This was found in the area separate from the carcass. There had not been any meat taken from the animal.

On same day, around 7:00 pm, a car with what was believed to be two hunters shot a buck deer near the town of Columbia in Carbon county.

A nearby homeowner yelled at them and they and fled the scene. The buck was a 2 x 2 and was left to waste. The hunters never returned to salvage the deer.

The harvesting of a big game animal and then leaving the animal to waste is a crime that should not be tolerated. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources Conservation Officers are asking for your help to bring these individuals to justice.

Anyone with information related to the illegal wasting of these animals, or any others, is encouraged to contact the UTiP Hotline @1-800-662-3337. Rewards are available and requests for confidentiality are respected.
