DWR Reward Offered for Information on Doe Poaching
|A doe deer poached in Carbon County, poaching is an ongoing problem being addressed by the Department of Wildlife Resources.|
PRICE - The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for poaching a doe deer in Carbon County sometime between Saturday evening, April 2 and Monday morning, April 4 near the Wildcat Loadout off Consumers Road near a sediment pond west of the railroad tracks. The doe had apparently gone to the sediment pond for a drink and was shot in the neck.
"With the high number of antler collectors afield, someone may have witnessed the crime," remarked Stacey Jones, a conservation officer. "While the killing of a doe may not seem like a big deal, every mortality is hard on herd production. The death of a doe results in the death of her unborn fawn and the future reproductive potential of both individuals."
Anyone, with information regarding the illegal taking of this doe, should call Officer Jones at: 435-820-6445. Persons reporting information may remain anonymous. A reward will be offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for this wildlife crime. If you witness any wildlife violation, please call the Help Stop Poaching Hotline at: 1-800-662-DEER.
