Public aid asked in poaching case

Print PageEmail PageShareGet Reprints

The Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) is asking the public for help in identifying the individual or individuals responsible for poaching two deer near the Utah/Colorado state line on or around Feb. 10.

Workers discovered one of the deer on February 13 and reported their finding to DWR law enforcement.

District Officer Joe Nicholson responded, locating a doe and yearling buck that had been shot and left to waste. The deer were shot just east of the state line along 1.8 road, which accesses the San Arroyo and Bitter Creek areas of the Book Cliffs.

The individuals responsible for shooting the deer made no effort to salvage meat from either animal and one of the deer was shot repeatedly before a fatal wound was inflicted.

"There's no excuse for this type of disregard for wildlife and the individuals involved will be aggressively prosecuted when located," reports Nicholson.

The DWR is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual or individuals responsible for this wildlife crime. Anyone having any information related to this case can contact Officer Nicholson directly at 435-820-6015 or contact the DWR Southeastern Regional Office at 435-636-0260. Informants will be kept anonymous upon request.
